FET Proactive is a component of Horizon 2020 that aims to identify the future and emergingtechnological paradigms with highest potential for Europe's economy and society. For each of them,it looks to establish a broad and solid European basis in terms of knowledge, key technologicalbuilding blocks and interdisciplinary communities. By reaching out well beyond the research world,it ensures that Europe has the best 'first mover' position to capitalise rapidly and effectively onemerging societal and industrial opportunities.


Objectives of the call

The call EIC Transition Activities pilot aims at bringing promising technologies as they are at theend of a typical FET-Open or FET Proactive project (i.e., Technology Readiness Level 2/3) to a level of development, validation and demonstration where they become a credible basis for entrepreneurship, business creation, investment and, ultimately, economic and/or societal returns.



Proposals must build on results from an ongoing or finished project (Research and InnovationAction), funded as a result of a FET-Open or FET Proactive call under Horizon 2020. The targetedtechnology should be in one of the following areas: Micro- and Nano-technologies; ArtificialIntelligence and advanced robotics; Technologies for the life sciences, health and treatment;Energy technologies; Interaction technologies (including virtual- augmented- and mixed reality).


Type of funded activities

Project must have essential capabilities to increase the maturity of the targeted technology.Activities proposed should reflect the level of maturity of the result to be taken up. Proposals caninclude activities with, for instance, partners for technology transfer, licence-takers, investors andother sources of financing, user/client organisations or potential end-users. The call does not fundresearch or activities that are/were already foreseen in the original FET project(s).


Partnership criteria

A project must involve at least three legal entities established in 3 EU Member States or countriesassociated to Horizon 2020.



A project should have an indicative budget of 1-2 million euro. The grant covers 100% of the costs.
