European Innovation Council logo combined with European Comission logo.

The European Innovation Council (EIC) welcome proposals from innovative researchers from any field of science, technology or application without predefined thematic priorities. The overall program as well as preliminary deadlines for the EIC calls was recently communicated in a dedicated draft work programme for 2022.

Here, the main structure of the EIC funding program remains since the 2021-programme and it is divided into the three paths of EIC Pathfinder, Transition and Accelerator, with both Open calls and Challenges.

The predicted deadlines for 2022 are as follows: EIC Pathfinder (Open 2 March 2022; Challenges 26 October 2022) and EIC  Transition (cut-offs at 6 April 2022; 15, June 2022 and 5, October 2022, for both Open and Challenges). As mentioned, this information comes from the draft version of the work programme and an important disclaimer is that nothing is set in stone and can be changed.

Please, note that the first deadline is already in March for EIC Pathfinder Open. If you are interested in the present draft work programme, please send me an email ( If you are interested in taking further part of information related to EIC, or know someone who should, please sign up for our EIC sending lists via this form I will continuously send out updated versions of the work programme via this dedicated send list, when available.

If you have any questions, don´t hesitate to send me an email direct!

Best regards
