Opportunities for Green Entrepreneurs and Female CEOs

The European Innovation Council (EIC) supports disruptive and market-creating innovations for high-tech SMEs to scale-up and prepare for the foundation of Horizon Europe. Irish Entrepreneurs were approved €38m of funding Irish companies under this programme in 2019. Enterprise Ireland is looking to support companies to exceed this success in 2020.

Due to a proposed substantial increase to the Horizon 2020 European Innovation Council Pilot budget for March 2020, a one-off EIC Accelerator call for Green Deal start-ups and SMEs is also planned for SMEs submitting for the 19th May 2020 cut-off. Companies will need to demonstrate how their innovation contributes to the goals of the European Green Deal:

➢Increasing the EU’s climate mitigation and/or adaptation ambition;
➢Supplying clean, affordable and secure energy;
➢Transitioning of industry to a clean and/or circular economy (including waste prevention and/or recycling); ➢Building and renovating in an energy and resource efficient way;
➢Accelerating the shift to sustainable and smart mobility;
➢Transition to a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system;
➢Preserving and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity;
➢Realizing a zero pollution ambition and a toxic-free environment

The 7th of October 2020 cut-off for the EIC Accelerator Pilot will remain open to all kind of innovations.

Further opportunities for companies with women CEOs will be implemented in May and October, to ensure that 25% of all selected applicants in the EIC Accelerator Pilot are women-led companies. In addition, should the first round evaluation show that a minimum of 25% of companies selected for the final-stage interviews are not led by women, additional interviews will be planned.

The European Commission released the following Press Release today, 7th June 2018:

For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission is proposing €100 billion for research and innovation.

A new programme – Horizon Europe – will build on the achievements and success of the previous research and innovation programme (Horizon 2020) and keep the EU at the forefront of global research and innovation. Horizon Europe is the most ambitious research and innovation programme ever.

Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, said “Investing in research and innovation is investing in Europe’s future. EU funding has allowed teams across countries and scientific disciplines to work together and make unthinkable discoveries, making Europe a world-class leader in research and innovation. With Horizon Europe, we want to build on this success and continue to make a real difference in the lives of citizens and society as a whole.”
