European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency


The objective of this action is to establish and grow business relations between EIC funded start-ups/SMEs and large companies. The collaboration between large companies and startups can provide priceless benefits for both, foster innovation and become crucial for the global scaleup of small companies. The successful contractor will support the organisation of specific matchmaking/pitching events (‘EIC Corporate Days’, ‘EIC Multicorporate Days’, ‘Enhanced cooperation’, ‘Innovation Procurement Actions’...), bringing together EIC companies and either a single large company or a network of large companies. This action will also support other types of collaborations among EIC awardees and large companies, such as venture client model activities and structured pilots and trials with corporates across different sectors.
