Do you have proof of a revolutionary concept that works, in theory? And are you ready to market this concept? Then join us on 28 June at the online EIC Transition pitch event.

The European Innovation Council (EIC) Transition is a new instrument in Horizon Europe that will facilitate your path from the lab to the market. An important part of this instrument is that you can successfully pitch your project to a group of experts. We offer you the opportunity to pitch your idea to our expert panel.


Pitch your idea during the EIC Transition event to a group of experts in a face-to-face interview. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency's panel for this training pitch also consist of experts. In this case, our Horizon Europe advisors of both the EIC Accelerator and EIC Pathfinder.

You can use this opportunity to get feedback and strengthen your idea before you apply.

The training pitch allows you to:

  • give a short, 5 minutes pitch about your project;
  • receive 10 minutes of thoughtful feedback on your project by our Horizon Europe EIC Transition experts.
