The DEEPACT (High Impact ACTion to Accelerate DEEP Tech Ecosystems) programme complements the specific actions undertaken in recent years by Fondazione LINKS in synergy with its Founders – Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and Politecnico di Torino – aimed at improving the Territory’s performance in attracting competitive funding for Deep Tech Innovation through the programmes promoted by the European Innovation Council (EIC).

In particular, DEEPACT offers Deep Tech SMEs operating in the LINKS ecosystem a personalised and free support service to prepare solid applications for one of the most ambitious EIC programmes: the EIC Accelerator, which funds SMEs and start-ups in scaling up innovations with the potential to establish themselves in the market from Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 to 8 and, potentially, TRL 9.

The SMEs to which DEEPACT will offer its support service will be selected among the ones that submit an application to this Call for Expressions of Interest and demonstrate the potential to successfully participate in the EIC Accelerator programme.

The DEEPACT Call for Expressions of Interest will have 2 cut-off dates and the support service will be provided by a Service Provider selected by Fondazione LINKS among the most successful companies in Europe, specialised in assisting SMEs in preparing EIC Accelerator applications.

If you are a Deep Tech SME that since 2019 entered the extended innovation ecosystem in which LINKS operates do not hesitate any further: download the DEEPACT Call for Expressions of Interest, check the conditions of participation and by the next cut-off date apply for your personalised support service!
