Given the multiannual financial framework 2021-2027, Europe has a tremendous tool to strengthen the EU’s global competitiveness, encourage innovation and enable a resilient, green and digital economy. Keeping these goals in mind, CECIMO reports on EU open calls opportunities, supported by the EU funding programmes, that will consolidate European strategic autonomy in high-level innovation.

This guide provides an overview of the different funding programmes, namely: Horizon Europe, Digital Europe Programme, European Innovation Council (EIC) and EIC Accelerator, European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Manufacturing, Erasmus +, as well as a description of the Cascade funding and its relevance for SMEs.

You will also find details about open calls for proposals in digitisation, cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Human-Robot collaboration, Additive Manufacturing (AM), sustainability, skills, Metaverse etc. Given that 2023 is the EU Year of Skills, the Commission recommends applying for skills development calls.
