Fast Track to Innovation is back and open to all

30 Aug 2017

Fast Track to Innovation is a funding instrument to boost close-to-market innovation projects.

FTI was first piloted in 2015-2016 under Horizon 2020, the EU’s 80 B€ research and innovation funding programme. FTI will now be re-launched along the adoption of the new Horizon 2020 work programme for 2018-2020.

The instrument is targeted for close-to-market innovation activities, aiming to reduce the time from idea to market and increase private sector investment in R&I. FTI funding can be applied by industry-intensive consortiums for both technical and commercial close-to-market activities, such as validation, piloting and advanced testing. It is open for both SMEs and large corporations.

The instrument is targeted for close-to-market innovation activities, aiming to reduce the time from idea to market and increase private sector investment in R&I.

The instrument is also meant for advanced commercialization projects with strong market potential, only in need of a final push before market entry. In addition to funding of up to 2-3 million euros, the instrument increases chances for market success by providing Europe-wide visibility and networking opportunities.

The first deadline for FTI proposals is already in February 2018, which means that preparations should be started as soon as possible.
