With its Bioeconomy Open Call (OC), DigiCirc is looking for solutions, based on digital technologies, to tackle a series of issues identified in the following sectors:

The OC will select consortia of SMEs/start-ups or entrepreneurs (as legal persons fulfilling H2020 SME definition) that propose a convincing innovative product or service, benefiting from the use of digital tools, with a clear market that will disrupt current linear value chains towards circular ones.

The selected consortia will get direct funding (up to €60 000 per SME) and integrate an intensive accelerator programme.
