A CALL FOR AN EIC AIRDROP

We face the most serious healthcare crisis of the last 100 years, a crisis that is highly impacting all components of our economic infrastructure. Through the release of this new Position Paper, the EWGIC (external link) calls on the EU Parliament and European Commission to take immediate action, through implementing an EIC Accelerator Airdrop that can offer liquidity to start-ups and innovative SMEs affected by the current crisis.

EWGIC CALLS FOR AN EIC AIRDROP

This position paper focuses on SMEs and the role that the European Commission must play to protect them, via the Horizon 2020 EIC Accelerator programme.
The EWGIC has summarised the most urgent problems to solve, with regards to the EIC Accelerator Programme, highlighting the following challenges to address:

  1. Oversubscription will have serious adverse effects on the programme unless the effort is made to increase budgets or curb the number of submissions,
  2. evaluation criteria must be clarified to ensure fair treatment of all proposals,
  3. running EIC projects must be protected, with additional pre-financing and simplified periodic reporting, and
  4. it’s time for an #EICAirdrop !
