This enables selected applications to develop their business propositions for solutions that empower citizens of the age of 60 and over to engage in entrepreneurship. The prize includes non-financial support such as workshops, networking and coaching at the semi-finalist event.
Individuals over the age of 18, groups and organisations located in EU member states, Canada, Taiwan and Horizon2020 associated countries, may apply. Applicants must have a working demonstration, tested and validated by a significant number of potential end users by the time of applying.
Up to 15 semi-finalists will receive a €500 product or prototype development grant as well as a travel grant to attend an academy event. Three prizes are available, the first prize is worth €35,000, the first runner up prize is worth €10,000 and the second runner up prize is worth €5,000.
Deadline: 26th February 2020.
