The winning teams were selected following an invitation to submit proposals, launched in January 2018, and a thorough evaluation of the proposals by independent experts and the EIT Governing Board. The EIT will provide each of the winning partnerships with a start-up grant of up to €4 million to ensure that they become operational as soon as possible.
