The European Commission (EC) has published an overview of the most recent evaluation results of the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot call under the SME Instrument of Horizon 2020, on its Participant Portal. The phase II Call under the work programme part "Towards the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation: European Innovation Council (EIC) Pilot" closed on 14 March 2018. It had received a total of 1,280 calls. After step 1, the number of above-threshold proposals was 509. Out of these, 135 proposals were selected for step 2 of the evaluation process. The number of projects proposed for funding after step 2 is 64. The total budget requested by these 64 proposals is € 110 million, just slightly below the total available budget of just under € 112 million for the call.
