Join the online launching event on 22 February and discover the services and the community!

The European Innovation Council (EIC) launches the SPIN4EIC Strategic Innovation Procurement Programme, an innovative and unique initiative dedicated to delivering unmatched support services to EIC innovators. Its purpose is to enhance their ability to access procurement markets both in Europe and worldwide. The program is committed to promoting the entry of outstanding EIC innovators into procurement markets, generating broader prospects for inventive SMEs and startups. SPIN4EIC extends its dedication also to Private and Public Buyers, with support services tailored for procurement of innovation.

The Programme provides assistance to EIC beneficiaries through Innovation Procurement Academies and tailored assistance to take part as bidders in Public and Private sector tenders in and outside Europe. It also includes specific support to Public Buyers contributing to the enhancement of their capacity to purchase innovative solutions and fostering innovation in Europe. SPIN4EIC also provides for events bringing together key EIC innovators and buyers and including pitching sessions and matchmaking corners.

The community of SPIN4EIC on the EIC Platform is animated by two distinct groups catering to Public and Private Buyers, along with five thematic groups: Agriculture, Food, and Beverage; Construction, Infrastructure, and Manufacturing; Digital Transformation; Energy, Water, Environment, Sustainability, and Mobility; and Health and Life Sciences. These groups will offer Buyers the opportunity and support to launch and promote their challenges and to EIC Beneficiaries the access and the visibility to them, together with the latest opportunities, calls and events that are pertinent to their respective fields of interest.

Who can participate in SPIN4EIC Programme?

EIC beneficiaries can access expanded business prospects by connecting with the demand side, and by receiving assistance in tender submissions for Innovation Procurements on both European and global scales.
