Additional 15 projects to be funded under Fast-Track-to-Innovation scheme
On 11 August 2016 the European Commission published the results of the Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) June cut-off. 15 projects involving 70 partners in 19 countries will be awarded €32 million to bring innovative ideas to market quicker. Austrian partners are involved in two successful projects:
- "BioDie2020" - AT Partner: BIOENERGY INTERNATIONAL AG
- "STILORMADE" - AT Partner: Technical University Vienna
The complete list of projects can be downloaded here.
The next cut-off – on 25 October 2016 – is the last of the pilot FTI scheme. Discussions are underway on the FTI scheme's future as part of a wider debate on the 2018-2020 Work Programme for Horizon 2020. A decision on FTI will be taken in the course of next year, taking into account an assessment of the results of the FTI pilot in 2015, an evaluation of the scheme and the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020.TOP
