EIC Pathfinder Challenges 2023
With its Pathfinder programme, the EIC supports exploring bold ideas for radically new technologies. It welcomes the high-risk/high-gain and interdisciplinary, cutting-edge science collaborations that underpin technological breakthroughs.
Pathfinder goes beyond what is already known. Visionary thinking can open up promising avenues towards powerful new technologies.
Grants of up to 3 to 4 million euro support early-stage development of future technologies (e.g. various activities at low Technology Readiness Levels 1-3), up to proof of concept. Pathfinder projects can also receive additional funding to test their research outputs’ innovation potential.
Address these EIC Pathfinder Challenges for a share of EUR 163.5 million
The EIC is looking for breakthroughs in the areas of in-space energy harvesting and transmission and novel propulsion concepts that will use such harvested energy.
- Architecture, Engineering and Construction digitalisation for a novel triad of design, fabrication, and materials
This Challenge seeks to develop research and early innovations with a breakthrough potential related to design, fabrication and materials for the AEC value chain enabled by novel algorithms
and advanced digitalization.
This Challenge will only fund multi-disciplinary research proposals that include at least nutritional, microbiome and glycan research aspects.
This Challenge fosters the development of eco-friendly electronic materials, reducing environmental harm and reducing reliance on scarce resources and harmful chemicals.
