Pathfinder, Accelerator, Innovation Fund – the EU speeds up for innovation

The EU is restructuring its research and development programmes: The major framework programme Horizon2020 will be followed by Horizon Europe from 2021. The programmes for technology companies were bundled in the European Innovation Council (EIC). Of particular interest are its large-volume Pathfinder and Accelerator programmes, which provide up to EUR 2.5 million in funding per project. The Eurostars Programme is suitable for lower financing requirements. Here are some key data:

  • Horizon Europe: The new programme from 2021.

  • Pathfinder: The Pathfinder programme addresses companies with disruptive innovations in an early technological phase.

  • Accelerator: The Accelerator Program then supports the demonstration phase and market launch. Grants of up to EUR 2.5 million per company.

  • Eurostars: for small European consortia of research performing SMEs

The Innovation Fund is a new large-volume program for large-scale technology and infrastructure projects. With a total budget of 110 billion EUR until 2030, it is able to support projects with a total of 1 billion EUR annually.
