EIC Accelerator 2022: January deadline cancelled!

With four deadlines announced for 2022, the EIC Accelerator was supposed to follow the predecessor programme "SME Instrument" and return to familiar patterns. But there will be no four deadlines in 2022 either as the EIC cancelled the deadline of 12 January 2022.

Thus, companies will be able to submit their full proposals to three deadlines in 2022:

  • 06 April
  • 15 June
  • 05 October

As before, these are provisional until the Work Programme is finalised. We are therefore looking forward to the Work Programme 2022, which will also define the upcoming challenges.


Regardless of deadlines, short applications can of course be submitted at any time - as first step before the full proposal.

Are you interested in the EIC Accelerator and would like to find out more?

Or are you already in the middle of the process and looking for concrete support with your application? Feel free to contact us.
