EU funding is complex and hard to navigate through, particularly for small companies.

3 main takeaways:

1. The European Innovation Council (EIC) will be the one-stop-shop for innovators in Horizon Europe (2021-2027) with a foreseen budget of €10 billion.

2. The EIC Accelerator pilot / SME instrument Phase 2 programme has a budget of €1.3 billion for 2019-2020 and targets deep tech startups.

3. If the SME instrument is not for you, you may still try to join a consortium for a collaborative call for proposals (cf H2020 ICT work programme).

Younis Hijazi is the founder of the Luxembourg-based consulting company YouScale Sàrl-S with the mission to help companies succeed in their exponential transformation. I have a scientific and international background (PhD in computer science; lived in six countries). Before starting my own company (in Feb 2019), I was working for the public sector for 7+ years -- being employed by the Luxembourg national innovation agency and working very closely with Ministries and EU institutions. Last but not least, my personal project is to "disrupt" the public sector by leveraging the ExO attributes.

YouScale helps companies scaling up by leveraging exponential technologies and provides consulting in EU policy & funding.
