View site

Target: National contact points, Participants

Themes: European Innovation Council, Pillar 3, EIC Accelerator

The new set of investment guidelines provides information to applicants and selected companies, as well as to potential co-investors, explaining in detail the investment process. It includes the strategy and conditions under which the EIC Fund will make investment and divestment decisions.  

Compared to the previous version, the guidelines provide, among others: 

  • an updated definition of a qualified investor  
  • an updated description of possible investment scenarios 
  • new clauses covering EIC Fund follow-on investments and exits.  

The investment guidelines ensure that the EIC investments fulfil the objectives to support high potential start-ups and SMEs to accelerate their scale up and to catalyse additional investors. This text is applicable to companies selected under Horizon Europe.
