The European Commission has published the 2018-2020 draft calls for proposals in the field of nanotechnologies, advanced materials, biotechnology, advanced manufacturing and processing. Many of the calls address horizontal issues critical for the industry of tomorrow, including next generation materials, factories of the future, sustainable industrial processes and circular economy. A part of the upcoming calls will be managed by the new EU body for fostering close-to-market research and rapid commercialization – the European Innovation Council (EIC). The Fast Track to Innovation funding instrument, very popular among large industry in the previous funding round, is back and will be run under the auspices of the EIC.

The full list of the published draft calls for proposals can be found here.
