Fast Track to Innovation Programme

The Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) pilot programme provides funding for bottom-up proposals for “close-to-market” innovation activities in any area of technology or application. The aim of the programme is to:

  • reduce time from idea to market,
  • stimulate the participation of first-time applicants (including SMEs) to EU research funding, and
  • increase private sector investment in research and innovation

The FTI Pilot will be implemented in 2015-2016 as a new initiative under Horizon 2020 and has a budget of €200 million. Proposals can be submitted at any time with three cut-off dates in 2015: 29 April, 1 September and 1 December.

Should you have any questions about the programme, please see the attached document or contact /
