The European Commission, under the Horizon Europe Framework Programme, is launching the EIC Transition call to fund the advancement of innovative technologies at the development stage from proof of concept in the laboratory to market development.

This call is not open, but is restricted to development projects previously funded under the European Research Council’s ERC Proof of Concept or EIC Pathfinder calls.

Within the call, two options stand out:

EIC Transition Open funds novel technologies from any scientific field that have already reached experimental proof of principle in the laboratory. These technologies should aim for further maturation and validation in the laboratory and in application-relevant environments to advance development towards the market.

EIC Transition Challenges specifically targeting:

  • Novel medical technologies and devices that address important health needs in direct clinical treatment and patient care, with a direct exploitation strategy.
  • Innovative technologies that develop efficient, low-cost, sustainable, compact and flexible energy harvesting, conversion and storage. These technologies should be important to meet the objectives of the European Green Pact for decarbonised energy systems while achieving the transition to secure and affordable energy.

This programme, aimed at funding projects of technological novelty, will support:

  • The maturation and validation of new technologies in the laboratory and in relevant application environments
  • The development of business cases and models for the futurecommercialisation of the innovation

Key ingredients to get the aid:

You will need to demonstrate that you are the owner, the holder of the intellectual property rights (IPR) or that you have the necessary rights to commercialise the results of one of these eligible projects.

To make a first assessment of whether your project can benefit from this line, ask the following questions:

Have you identified results from the Pathfinder, FET or ERC proof-of-concept project that could be the basis for breakthrough innovations and new businesses?
Is this new technology ready for the next steps towards maturation and validation in some specific applications?
Do you plan to build a motivated and diverse team of entrepreneurial leaders to develop the idea and increase its market readiness?

Before deciding to submit, we recommend that you carefully study the criteria and objectives of the work programme and assess, if necessary with the help of a specialist, whether your project fits the objectives.


The European Innovation Council (EIC) has officially launched and adopted its long-awaited work programme for 2024, detailing strategic objectives, key performance indicators and funding schemes aimed at fostering the development of innovative technologies as well as supporting disruptive companies.
