EIC (European Innovation Council) Accelerator Pilot, formerly known as SME Instrument Phase 2, is a funding and support program under Horizon 2020 of European Commission. It offers innovative SMEs up to €2.5M of grant and up to €15M of equity in addition to business acceleration services. To provide you with convenience and fast adaptation, I have prepared a mini guide that explains its key elements and application process. You can download the guide for free. [As of April 2021, Pilot phase ended and EIC opened new Accelerator calls. Please review the initial version of the new Guide for Applicants.]
