The Fast-Track Call is open for the following KAVA segments:

  • Education (PhD Education, Master Education, Lifelong Learning, Wider Society Learning)
  • Upscaling
  • Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS)
  • Internationalisation

The maximum amount of the EIT RawMaterials funding allocated to each project will not exceed €200,000. Project funding in excess of €200,000 may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility to apply for this call is restricted to:

  • ongoing KAVAs, i.e., projects that have been allocated EIT RawMaterials funding in 2020;
  • KAVAs completed in 2019, i.e., projects that have been allocated EIT RawMaterials funding in 2019.

The following activities are eligible for support:

  • Increase in scope of the project: activities that will lead to a demonstrated and quantifiable increased impact of the project (e.g., additional/higher KPIs, creation of a success story).
  • Speed-up the launch of a product to the market: activities that will accelerate the launch of a product/service to the market (see Appendix 2).
  • These activities are specifically aimed at recently finished or ongoing Upscaling and LLL projects with good performance but in need of additional funding to launch their products/services to the market or a commercialisation partner.
  • Development of a GoToMarket strategy. This activity applies only to projects that, at the time of selection, did not have a mandatory GoToMarket work package and that, therefore, had not budgeted for this activity (see Appendix 3).
  • Applications to COVID-19: activities that, within the context of the existing project, will lead to demonstrated, immediate and quantifiable positive outcomes in the fight against the current COVID-19 pandemic (see Appendix 4).
