The European Commission’s Fast Track to Innovation Pilot supports innovative projects to help them from the demonstration stage through to market launch.

This might include piloting, test-beds, systems validation in real world conditions, validation of business models, pre-normative research and standard-setting.

The pilot scheme targets relatively mature new technologies, concepts, processes and business models that need a last development step to reach the market and achieve wider deployment.

The Fast Track to Innovation Pilot is part of the EC’s Horizon 2020 initiative. Find out more about this call on the European Commission site, or learn about other kinds of EU funding available in our Beginner’s guide.
