the EIC & EIE NCPs provide useful resources to navigate across EIC instruments and European Innovation Ecosystems calls and initiatives
Italian Agency for the Promotion of European Research (APRE)
Access2EIC is a 7-year coordination and support action targeted to NCPs that support the European Innovation Council (EIC) and the European Innovation Ecosystems (EIE) parts of the Horizon Europe Framework Programme 2021-2027.
It aims to improve the professionalization and skills of the EIC & EIE NCPs across Europe. This will help to simplify the access of the participants to the EIC & EIE calls in general, lowering the entry barriers for newcomers and raising the average quality of proposals submitted by the different stakeholders involved within the EIC and EIE domain, particularly for women entrepreneurs and those coming from widening countries.
The project also targets to identify and share good practices among NCPs promoting trans-national cooperation taking into consideration the general novelties under Horizon Europe as well as the specific ones under the “Innovative Europe” pillar.
