About SoTecIn Factory Open Call 2

EU-funded project SoTecIn Factory launched the second round of Open Calls for Social Innovators and their 3.3M EUR program to support mission-driven, social innovation ventures (individuals or organisations) in food, water & nutrients, textiles and plastics & packaging value chains in transforming industry into low-carbon via their tech-driven solutions based on higher R circular economy strategies.

The Open Call 2 will award 25 European social innovators with up to 15.000 EUR for their ideas as solutions to circular challenges in the context of the specific project Mission (either a concrete problem proposed by the applicant or selected from one of the circular challenges coming directly from industry). From this group, 15 innovators will engage in a pre-market technological demonstration with additional funding support of up to 85.000 EUR. Besides equity-free funding, the beneficiaries will receive additional support in training, mentoring, and peer-to-peer engagement and pilot development.

Join the webinar about the Open Call 2!

This webinar is addressed to tech-savvy innovators interested in applying to the program and will provide detailed information about the call with useful tips to solve the questions and help you submit a better proposal.

We invite any member of civil society (individual or organization) operating in one of the key industrial chains: “food, water and nutrient”, “textiles” and “plastics and packaging” and who has a tech-driven solution that can create social and systemic impact in the industry. 

Also, we expect tech-savvy innovators (startups, SMEs and NGOs) who are oriented towards social impact and market impact, have a clear business strategy and are full of enthusiasm to develop a new product, even though their resources are often limited.
