Industry 5.0 Award: EU rewards deep tech start-ups

Deep Tech

The European Commission has launched the 2023 Industry 5.0 Award, which recognises and values EU-funded projects that make an outstanding contribution towards building a European industry. The plan is to achieve social goals beyond employment and growth, becoming a resilient provider of prosperity, making production more sustainable and putting the well-being of the worker at the heart of the production process.

Eligible projects must have received funding from Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe or the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Projects involving deep-tech start-ups are particularly encouraged to participate.

The official project start date must be after 31 August 2018 and the results must have a clear application in the industry.

Applications for participation may be submitted by 17:00 on 1 September 2023.
