EUA offered a webinar on universities and the European Innovation Council (EIC). The webinar gave an introduction to the purposes and function of the EIC in the future, as well as the experiences from the past.


The EIC is an initiative under Horizon Europe’s Open Innovation Pillar. As a prime instrument for funding breakthrough, market-creating innovation from research to commercialisation and scale-up, it offers unique opportunities to nurture Europe’s cutting-edge R&D. The webinar was an opportunity for EUA members and other interested participants to learn more about how university-based projects can benefit from EIC support.
