We are pleased to announce the important dates for the PARSEC Accelerator Open Call 2. The applications will be open from 30 March 2020 until 20 June 2020 at 17:00 CET. An integral part of the Open Call 2 is the PARSEC Demo Day which will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 2-3 July 2020.


What is the PARSEC Accelerator Open Call 2?

The second Open Call provides access to the PARSEC Accelerator second stage. It will be open for cross-sectoral and/or cross-border consortia of 2-4 innovators (start-ups, SMEs, researchers…) where at least one of the members is a winner of the PARSEC Accelerator Open Call 1 (#100PARSEC). Applicants of the Open Call 2 will pitch their Earth Observation-based innovations for Food, Energy or Environment at the PARSEC Demo Day in Brussels, Belgium, on 2 and 3 July 2020. A jury consisting of industrial CEOs, investors and business leaders will select 15 winning consortia (#15PARSEC) that each will receive €100.000 equity-free funding and second stage business support services such as PARSEC business catalysts, investment readiness programme, and export promotion services.

How to create a cross-sectoral and/or cross-border consortium for the PARSEC Accelerator Open Call 2?

Innovators who are not among the #100PARSEC will have to team up with one of the #100PARSEC in order to apply. We will facilitate this consortia-building by publishing the list of #100PARSEC on our website and organising multiple matchmaking events.

More information and guidelines for applicants will be available soon. Sign up for our news alerts (footer of this page) to be the first one to know!
