Europe's new "Super Fund": the European Innovation Council Fund

Basic information
Date of placement

Sessions from the European Research and Innovation days 2020. Hub 8 - European Innovation Council The EIC Fund fills the funding gap at the start-up stage where the EU venture capital market underperforms compared to the global venture capital market. This is the first time the European Commission will make direct equity investments in companies. Its main purpose is not to maximise the return on investments, but to accompany the companies in their growth as patient capital investor. Overall, the EIC Fund aims to stimulate the European venture capital industry by selection of pure excellence in supporting founders, whilst paying attention to gender balance, and high risk innovative projects with equally high social and economic impact. The EIC Fund does not aim to compete with the market, but to crowd-in other investors and to stimulate this currently underperforming market. European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship Research and Innovation event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.
