Startups are invited to apply to the GEC Programmes by responding to the GEC Calls for Solutions in their respective sector:
If your company does not DIRECTLY provide innovative and sustainable solutions for the preceding sectors, you could still be considered for GEC funding, provided that your offering is a key enabler for those. Which enabling cross-industry technologies, services and business models do you provide? We also look at champions in:
- Sustainable Chemistry Energy Solutions
- Materials Science Innovation
- Robotics and Sensor Technologies
- Artificial Intelligence
- Digital Twin
- Logistics Innovation
If you don’t want to miss any information, register now for our GEC newsletter.
You qualify for the GEC programmes, if you have at least developed a first product or service (TRL 4-5 for GEC Catalyst), secured first (pre-)seed funding and your sustainable deep-tech solution and business model pass our sustainability assessment during the selection process. In 2023, there will be three openings for your applications. So if you’re not ready yet to apply now, please do so in May or October.

At this stage of the submission, no formal non-disclosure agreement (NDA) can be granted. Please therefore only share information that does not require any such NDA. In the further assessment phase, more detailed information may well be necessary to grant the award. Such information can then be subject to a specific contract.
