EIT InnoEnergy launches Investment Round for Innovation Projects
EIT InnoEnergy has launched its 2017 Investment Round to discover, support and launch the next revolutionary technologies in energy innovation.By connecting successful applicants with InnoEnergy’s pan-European network of industry experts, businesses and researchers, the round will help European businesses – start-ups, SMEs or larger, address the challenges faced when commercialising technology – shortening the journey from lab to launch.
Since 2011, the Investment Round has successfully supported projects to raise €1.2 billion (bn), with EIT InnoEnergy investing €147 million and the remainder being funded by partner companies and investors. This has resulted in the creation of 250 project partners across Europe, with 78 products now commercially viable and linked to €3bn in forecasted sales.
This year’s Investment Round has a simplified, streamlined application. The three-page questionnaire will make the round more accessible to an increased number of applicants and enable EIT InnoEnergy to screen technologies based on specific criteria.
Deadline: 7th April, 2017
