The EIC aims to support top-class innovators, entrepreneurs, small companies and researchers with bright ideas and the ambition to scale-up internationally. It includes two funding schemes: the EIC Pathfinder (grant only) which includes the FET-Open and FET-Proactive schemes; and the EIC Accelerator which includes the SME instrument scheme.
