EU Programmes - Open Calls 

Erasmus+ Call for proposals 2021 – EAC/A01/2021

Erasmus+

2021

The new Erasmus+ programme provides opportunities for study periods abroad, traineeships, apprenticeships, and staff exchanges in all fields of education, training, youth and sport. It is open to school pupils, higher education and vocational education and training students, adult learners, youth exchanges, youth workers and sport coaches.

In addition to mobility, which counts for 70% of the budget, the new Erasmus+ also invests in cross‑border cooperation projects. These can be between higher education institutions (e.g. the European Universities initiative); schools; teacher education and training colleges (e.g. Erasmus+ Teacher Academies); adult learning centres; youth and sport organisations; providers of vocational education and training (e.g. Vocational Centres of Excellence); and other actors in the learning sphere.

Green Deal innovations for the Economic Recovery

EC - HORIZON EUROPE

2021

You should apply to the EIC Accelerator Challenge – Green Deal innovations for the Economic Recovery, if your project supports the Green Deal implementation by significantly contributing to at least one of the following sustainability goals:

  • Increasing the EU’s climate mitigation and/or adaptation ambition;

  • Supplying clean, affordable and secure energy;

  • Transitioning of industry to a clean and/or circular economy (including waste prevention and/or recycling);

  • Building and renovating in an energy and resource efficient way;

  • Accelerating the shift to sustainable and smart mobility;

  • Transition to a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system;

  • Preserving and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity (including nature based solutions that provide co-benefits for climate adaptation and mitigation);

  • Realising a zero pollution ambition and a toxic-free environment.

Deadline for the submission of applications:

EIC Accelerator Open 2021

EC - HORIZON EUROPE

2021

The EIC Accelerator supports companies (principally start-ups and SMEs) to scale up high impact innovations with the potential to create new markets or disrupt existing ones. The EIC Accelerator provides a unique combination of funding from EUR 0.5 to EUR 17.5 million and Business Acceleration Services (see Chapter V of the EIC Work Programme 2021).

The EIC Accelerator focuses in particular on innovations building on scientific discovery or technological breakthroughs (‘deep tech’) and where significant funding is needed over a long timeframe before returns can be generated (‘patient capital’). Such innovations often struggle to attract financing because the risks and time period involved are too high. Funding and support from the EIC Accelerator is designed to enable such innovators to attract the full investment amounts needed for scale up in a shorter timeframe.

The EIC Accelerator is open to innovations in any field of technology or application. However, innovations that harm the environment or social welfare or that are designed primarily for military applications will not be supported.
