FET Innovation Launchpad FETOPEN-03-2018-2019-2020
This topic aims at turning results from FET-funded projects into genuine societal or economic innovations. It covers short individual or collaborative actions focused on the non-scientific aspects and the early stages of turning a result of an ongoing or recently finished project funded through FET under FP7 or Horizon 2020[1] into a genuine innovation with socio-economic impacts. The precise link with the relevant FET project and the specific result for which a FET Innovation Launchpad proposal is intended, are to be explicitly described in the proposal.
