New call for a European network to support Ukrainian startups

The call “Pan-European network of startup associations to support the integration of Ukrainian tech innovators into European ecosystems and to enhance their operations in Ukraine” has been officially published, which aims to build a European network to support Ukrainian tech startups.

Specifically, the call seeks to fund a network composed of intermediary organizations, such as startup associations, business support centers or accelerators operating at the European or transnational level, to provide urgent support to Ukrainian innovative technology companies (startups and SMEs).

To qualify for such support, they must have their headquarters in Ukraine or have relocated to an EU member state or a Horizon Europe associated country with a relocation or establishment date after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. These companies must also have at least one founder or co-founder or top manager (CEO, CTO or equivalent) with Ukrainian citizenship. Special attention will be paid to supporting women-led businesses and those working on innovative solutions, services, products for reconstruction and recovery in Ukraine.

The action strengthens activities funded under the European Innovation Council (EIC), paving the way for participation of Ukrainian start-ups in future EIC calls.

Given the unstable security situation on the ground and uncertainties about future developments, the proposal should contain a flexible activity model to adapt to the evolving situation in Ukraine and the changing needs of the Ukrainian innovation community.

The call for proposals will remain open until September 7, 2022.

To participate, contact the team of Malta Business Agency by filling out the form below.
