ENAC Innovation Seed Grants - call 2023


Event details

Date 19.08.2023 14.09.2023
Category Call for proposal

Do you want to contribute to sustainability through an innovative solution?

ENAC researchers can apply for seed funding (max. 20kCHF over 6 months) to explore an innovative idea, to refine a proof-of-concept, or validate your project idea.

ENAC encourages technology transfer and innovation through the "Innovation Seed Grants" program. The program aims to support ENAC graduate students and researchers in the initial development phase of an application, product or service with a real societal impact. The 20kCHF seed money grant should give a first opportunity to validate your innovation ideas and get ready for future innovation funding programs at EPFL such as the EPFL VPA enable grants and/or VPI Ignition grants or Innogrants. There are no restrictions on the application areas of research as long as the product or service development contributes to sustainable, innovative and inclusive solutions.

Proposals should be submitted to one of the three deadlines in 2023: February 23, June 15 or September 14.
