The European Light Industries Innovation and Technology project (ELIIT Project) has launched its second Call for Proposals on 25 January 2021. Like the first call, this call aims to foster the collaboration between SMEs active in the textile, clothing, leather and footwear sectors (TCLF) and technology providers with innovative solutions that can bring the SMEs’ performance to a new level.
The deadline for applications is 14th April 2021.
Each selected partnership will benefit from:
- €70,000 in financial support to develop products or prototypes with high added-value and profitability
- tailor-made coaching and advice program to improve project relevancy and increase capabilities
