Innovation Capacity Building for Higher Education: Pilot Call for Proposals
European higher education institutions are invited to design institution-wide action plans that will improve their entrepreneurial and innovation capacity across all institutional levels and empower them to become regional engines of innovation. Proposals must support the development and implementation of six actions in their institutions that lead to transformation and increased entrepreneurial and innovation capacity. HEIs (working in consortia) will be expected to demonstrate how they can leverage smart specialisation as an impetus to accelerate ecosystem integration and establishment of partnerships.
Up to 23 pilot projects will be selected for support over 24 months, starting from July 2021. The call is open from 24 March – 25 May 2021.
