European Data Incubator Call for Applications
European Data Incubator is looking for 50 promising big data startups and SMEs to take part in their next round of incubation. The programme takes startups through three intense phases of growth over eight months, from August 2018 – April 2019, with a combination of online sessions and physical meetings in Bilbao and Berlin. Up to €100K, training and workshops, mentoring from dedicated coaches, and direct access to large European corporates are offered.
Interested startups and SMEs will solve a challenge during the incubation programme. This year’s open call allows for 3 types of application tracks:
Track 1 – Ready-made:
A ‘ready-made’ challenge pre-set by EDI, with options by large corporates in the fields of IoT, transport, sports, gaming, media, energy and the environment, fraud detection, smart cities, retail, and finance. Our companies are established in their markets and can offer you the chance to connect with the sector in a new way, creating long-term relationships beyond the end of the project.
Track 2 – Half and half:
Bring your own challenge, but solve it using one EDI data set and one external data set.
Track 3 – Free choice:
You are free to propose your own challenge, and solve it working with your own data provider and external data set.
EDI (European Data Incubator) is an 8-month incubation programme for big data SMEs and startups in Europe. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 779790.
