EISMEA publishes new tender for the future European Innovation Council Corporate Partnership Programme 3.0.

The objective of this action is to establish and grow business relations between EIC-funded start-ups, SMEs and large companies. The collaboration between large companies and start-ups can provide priceless benefits for both, foster innovation and become crucial for the global scale-up of small companies. The successful contractor will support the organisation of specific matchmaking/pitching events (‘EIC Corporate Days’, ‘EIC Multicorporate Days’, ‘Enhanced cooperation’, ‘Innovation Procurement Actions’ etc.), bringing together EIC companies and either a single large company or a network of large companies.

This action will also support other types of collaborations among EIC awardees and large companies, such as venture client model activities and structured pilots and trials with corporates across different sectors. The services that are the subject of this call for tenders are described in detail in the tender specifications in Section 1.

Available budget: EUR 5 000 000.

Deadline for applications: 23 October 2023, at 10:00 CET.

Applications should be submitted electronically via the e-tendering portal.
