Our experts together with other business angels, investors, incubator managers and other players in the innovation ecosystem, will judge the SMEs applying for Phase 2 awards of the SME Instrument. This instrument supports the companies in turning their business concepts into market-ready products, services or processes.

ESIL is very proud of counting with four of their partners in the judging panel, where they will share their expertise and knowledge to select the best SMEs that will be awarded with up to €2.5 million funding. This assessment methodology is newly introduced as part of the EIC SME Instrument, the initiative designed to revamp the SME Instrument evaluations, making sure the best European innovators get funding.
