Innovation Funding Catalyst


The Innovation Funding Catalyst (IFC) is an initiative by EIT Manufacturing Innovation Program to support members and innovators in the manufacturing sector to identify and apply for EU funding.

The IFC aligns with the scope of EIT Manufacturing to bring together manufacturing actors across Europe to integrate innovation and education for an entrepreneurial and sustainable Europe.​

The aim is to support and accelerate the growth of innovative ideas and projects in the manufacturing sector, connecting organisations and providing guidance, with the goal to increase the chances of success in securing funding.

The initiative will allow EIT Manufacturing to support the participation of its community members and other European manufacturing organisations in different calls and funding schemes, for example, Horizon Europe, building trust and paving the way to future innovation.
