This EC funding call aims to increase market uptake of creative and innovative products, services, techniques or processes, whose feasibility has been demonstrated but have not yet achieved market success.

It aims to shorten the time-to-market of innovative solutions, remove obstacles to wider application of creative solutions, create or enlarge markets for products (or services) and improve the competitiveness of European companies in world markets.

The call specifically targets SMEs that can participate alone or lead a consortium (including for example academia, other research and technology organisations).

This funding call is part of the EC’s COSME initiative. Find out more about the call on the European Commission site or learn about other kinds of EU funding available in our Beginner’s guide.
