Croatian Agency for SMEs, Innovation and Investments (HAMAG-BICRO) and the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) are pleased to invite you to the European Innovation Council Info Day (EIC) that will take place in Hoteli Solaris 86, Šibenik, Croatia (Convention centre), on 13th of June 2023

The European Innovation Council (EIC) is part of the HORIZON EUROPE programme that provides support to innovators, entrepreneurs and SMEs with great potential in the development of high-risk, breakthrough innovations that have an impact on shaping new markets and generating jobs, growth and prosperity in Europe.

This Info Day will provide all the relevant information on the EIC funding opportunities for game-changing innovations throughout the lifecycle from early-stage research to proof of concept, technology transfer, financing and scale-up of start-ups and SMEs. The focus of this Info Day will be on Widening Countries and the opportunity to gather all their stakeholders (SMEs, start-ups, research organisations, and investors) at the same place.

To achieve that, the speakers at the Info Day will be the members of the EIC Board, independent members appointed from the world of innovation, the experts from the EIC and SME Executive Agency (EISMEA) responsible for implementing the EIC’s activities, EIC Croatian ambassador as well as representatives of the governmental bodies. Participants will be granted advisors from the national EEN consortium.

We hope that this Info Day will give the participants the opportunity to learn about the application process, eligibility criteria, and evaluation process for the EIC Pathfinder, EIC Transition and EIC Accelerator Programmes. This is your first step towards the EIC possibilities.


Participation in the Info Day is free of charge. The working language of the event is English.
