The EIC Accelerator supports companies (principally start-ups, spin-outs and SMEs, and in exceptional cases small mid-caps) to bring their innovations to market and scale up. The aim is to scale up high impact innovations with the potential to create new markets or disrupt existing ones. The EIC Accelerator provides a unique combination of funding from EUR 0.5 to EUR 17.5 million and Business Acceleration Services. The EIC Accelerator is open to innovations in any field of technology or application. Particular focus is on innovations building on scientific discovery or technological breakthroughs.
You can choose a Top-down approach to take part in Horizon Europe projects. If you have the Capacity to coordinate large-scale collaborative projects you can create your consortium and write a proposal for RIA, IA, or CSA actions (70 - 80% of the Topics are Top-Down). Or create a partner's profile and negotiate your role in somebody else' Consortium as a partner.
The second pathway is to choose a Bottom-Up approach and apply with your own project initiative under EIC ( for SMEs), ERC (for scientists), Twinning and MSCA (mostly Academia but SMEs are invited as partners)
