Open Calls

SoTecIn Factory has a 3.3 Million EUR fund available to support tech-driven, social innovations in food, water & nutrients, textiles and plastics & packaging industry value chains.

In 2023 and 2024, the project launched two rounds of Open Call for social innovators. The Open calls aim to award 50 European individuals and organisations with up to 15,000 EUR for their ideas. From this group, 30 innovators are engaging in a pre-market technological demonstration with up to 85,000 EUR of additional funding support.

Besides the equity-free funding up to 100,000 EUR, the innovators benefit from:

  • Direct support and guidance from a pool of mentors for pre-market technological demonstration of their solutions as social ventures
  • Access to specialized and qualified resources within various disciplines and technologies for social entrepreneurship
  • The chance to solve concrete challenges based on one of the circular project Missions and collaborate closely with industry partners, creating real impact in terms of resilience and sustainability.
  • Participation in the design of new business models and in visibility actions that will foster the wide industry and market uptake of more resilient and inclusive tech-social innovations.
