Call for proposals — Support to trans-national networks of incubators for social innovation FP7-CDRP-2013-INCUBATORS Closed!


Incubators can accelerate the growth of small innovative businesses (for profit and non-profit) and, in the case of social innovation, enable experiments that are small and locally successful to be applied in other places across Europe, spreading good ideas and innovations. The action will provide support for up to two transnational networks of incubators to facilitate the scaling up of social innovations from their local communities to higher levels across Europe.

A broad definition of "incubators for social innovation" is applied, including business clusters and networks, social innovation parks, universities, technological institutes, private research institutions and bodies.
