Innobuyer calls EIC beneficiaries to co-create pilots with public organisations

Applications for the InnoBuyer Call for EIC Solvers are now Open!

The EU-funded project InnoBuyer is inviting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) funded by the EIC to apply for its Open Call for EIC Solvers. A total amount up to €260.000 is available to support 4 innovative SMEs (Solvers), to collaborate with public organisations (Challengers) and tackle challenges in these public organisations requiring innovative solutions that are not yet in the market.

The InnoBuyer programme offers funding for the Solver and the Challenger, support in the form of a 10-month co-creation programme in which the Solver and the Challenger closely collaborate to develop and pilot a solution, as well as access to potential customers of the developed solutions.

"A pioneering EIC-funded project, InnoBuyer is revolutionising innovation procurement. We’re facilitating the customisation of solutions for public procurers by fostering collaboration between public and private sectors to come to impactful outcomes that address real-world challenges. More than just funding for SMEs, this is a chance to co-create, pilot and scale innovations with the support and visibility that can only come from an EU-backed endeavour"

Who can apply?

This is an opportunity for SMEs that are currently or were previously funded by the European Innovation Council (EIC) to team up with a public organisation of their choice and apply to test and pilot a solution for a concrete challenge that exists in the public domain.
