EIC Horizon Prizes

The EIC pilot runs several Horizon Prizes which award the most innovative solutions to societal challenges. Each EIC Horizon Prize has an ambitious goal to solve a major challenge facing society, without detailing how this should be achieved or who should achieve it. These prizes are open to anyone willing to think outside the box across sectors and disciplines. The prize is awarded to whoever best meets the challenge.

At present the following Prizes are launched:

  • Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid
  • Fuel from the Sun
  • Innovative Batteries for eVehicles
  • Early Warning for Epidemics
  • Blockchains for Social Good
  • Low-Cost Space Launch

The prizes range from 1M€ to 10M€ and will be closed between the 3rd quarter of 2019 and the 2nd quarter of 2021.
