EIC Pathfinder Challenges Support to research teams to research or develop an emerging breakthrough technology

IC Pathfinder Challenges aim to build on new, cutting-edge directions in science and technology to disrupt a field and a market or create new opportunities by realising innovative technological solutions grounded in high-risk/high-gain research and development.
With each specific Challenge, the EIC will establish a portfolio of projects that explore different perspectives, competing approaches or complementary aspects of the Challenge. The complexity and high-risk nature of this research will require multidisciplinary collaborations.

You should apply if you have an ambitious idea to realise the vision of a specific Pathfinder Challenge.
EIC is particularly interested in your ideas for new deep-tech: technology that becomes possible thanks to cutting-edge science in an area of the specific challenge. We are seeking new technological solutions at early stage of development that are new and disrupt the standard practice up to this point.
You should apply if you have a potential project that would contribute to the specific objectives of the respective Challenge. Specifically, your project must aim to deliver, by its end the specific outcomes defined in the respective challenge chapter.

The 6 Challenges are:

- Carbon dioxide & Nitrogen management and valorisation
- Mid-long term, systems-integrated energy storage
- Cardiogenomics
- Healthcare Continuum technologies
- DNA-based digital data storage
- Alternative Quantum Information Processing, L26Communication, and Sensing

Budget: The total indicative budget for this call is EUR 167 million which is expected to be allocated in approximately equal shares across the challenges.

The EIC considers proposals with an EU contribution of up to EUR 4 million as appropriate. Nonetheless, this does not preclude you to request larger amounts, if properly justified or stated otherwise in the specific Challenge. The funding rate of this grant will be 100% of the eligible costs.

Deadline: Call will open on 15 June until 19 October 2022 at 17h00 Brussels local time
Who can apply: The Pathfinder Challenges support collaborative research and innovation from consortia or applications from single legal entities (unless stated otherwise in the specific challenge chapter).
In case of a consortium, this should include at least two independent legal entities (as for example universities, research organisations, SMEs, start-ups, natural persons). In the case of monobeneficiary projects, mid-caps and larger companies will not be permitted.
