The 3rd call for Innovation Seed Grant proposals is now open! You can apply for funding to explore an innovative idea, to refine a proof-of-concept, or validate your project idea.

ENAC wants to encourage technology transfer and innovation through the "Innovation Seed Grants" program. The program aims to support ENAC graduate students and researchers in the initial development phase of an application, product or service with a real societal impact. The 20kCHF seed money grant should give a first opportunity to validate your innovation ideas and get ready for future innovation funding programs at EPFL such as the EPFL VPA enable grants and/or VPI Ignition grants or Innogrants. There are no restrictions on the application areas of research as long as the product or service development contributes to sustainable, innovative and inclusive solutions.

Proposals should be submitted to one of the three deadlines in 2023: February 23, June 6 or September 14.
