Work with us
The European Innovation Council (EIC) stimulates strong collaboration between EIC top-notch innovators and public or private buyers, investors, technology giants and industrial leaders to spur new partnerships to modernize their services for the benefit of the EU economy.
The EIC Business Acceleration Services is implementing the EIC Innovation Procurement Partnership Program to allow EIC-funded companies to boost their networks and meet relevant innovation procurement makers from the most ambitious public or private buyers within, and outside, Europe.
From June 2019 until summer 2022, 15 initiatives have been organized through “EIC Procurers Days” and “EIC Multiprocurers Days” with the participation of more than 300 business public or private buyers’ partners.
Over 150 EIC-funded startups/scale-ups/SMEs have been able to participate in these initiatives, reporting a business impact of 56 follow-up discussions and 11 signed contracts and NDAs.
The following sectors are covered: pharmaceutical industry, healthcare institutions (university hospitals), health emergency services, postal services, mobility infrastructures, robotic and industrial processes, metal coating industries,
The satisfaction rate among procurers’ representatives has reached 86%, proving the efficiency of the concept: bridging the gap between innovative SMEs and large public & private buyers’ can prove to be a vital strategy for introducing innovations and reaching new clients.
