The EIC brings innovators and industry together. We partner with the EIC to find and progress transformative ideas from SMEs and innovators. The EIC’s specialist team will guide you through the application process, share many helpful innovator resources, and if necessary advise on the best funding options for your ideas.

Support is free of charge and includes access to various resources such as: • the ultimate guide to innovating with the energy networks • an interactive funding finder • a single industry calendar Solutions can also be proposed in response to ‘Calls for Innovation’, or ideas with the potential to benefit our industry partners can be submitted any time.
