Implementing organisation were invited to submit project outlines for one or several of the 12 thematic priorities. The funding volume provided by the IKI was 10 million to a maximum of 20 million euros per project.

The project submission period ran from 01 November 2022 to 21 February 2023.

We received 196 project ideas from which 14 outlines were selected. All participants were informed about the results by email. The consortia of the 14 selected project outlines were invited to submit a detailed project proposal or a project offer.

There is no entitlement to funding/financing in the first phase of the selection procedure. A binding commitment shall be constituted only by the grant award document/signed grant agreement or the commissioning according to the provisions of grant law or contractual provisions. These are dependent on the proposal or offer review and the availability of the budget.
