Let’s bridge the gap between your research and the market launch.
WHAT IS THE ERC PROOF OF CONCEPT PROGRAM
In 2011, the European Research Council -ERC- launched the «Proof of Concept-PoC-» funding initiative.
The objetive of the ERC PoC program is to provide support to projects already financed by the Consortium in any previous call, seeking to bring value to the project, in order to implement the proof of concept, identify developing and designing a protection strategy of intellectual property appropriate. It aims to bring it closer to the market and search for the commercial use for the results of the research previously funded.
WHO IS THE TARGET
