VInnovate Call 2024

On 5 December 2023, the Vanguard Initiative celebrated the official launch of VInnovate. This is a unique Interregional Funding mechanism designed to enable the funding of innovation projects in the context of the VI Pilots activities, with the aim to generate industry-led and strategic interregional projects.

The instrument supports interregional innovations projects, following the logic of the ‘Virtual Common Pot Model’, where applicants from participating countries/regions are to be funded according to the rules and decisions of the respective regional/national funding programmes or instruments.

Several VI member regions have already committed themselves to contribute to VInnovate. Stakeholders from the regions listed below are eligible to apply to the call VInnovate Call 2024.
