Strategic plans for 2021 EIC Pathfinder Challenge portfolios

To address the gap between research excellence and transformation of the findings into market opportunities, the Programme Managers of the European Innovation Council (EIC) have introduced five strategic plans for the 2021 EIC Pathfinder Challenge portfolios.

The plans include portfolio activities at different levels such as technology, transition of technology to innovation, communication and disseminations, and ethics issues. They also include activities that contribute to better understand and improve the current regulatory framework, market analysis mappings, discussions on IP management and training activities which would be beneficial to all the projects of the portfolio.

The strategic plans are created based on collaborations agreed between individual portfolio projects. The Programme Managers, working together with the Project Officers and the portfolio steering committees, are responsible for the overall design and development of the plans.
