COSME Call for Proposal: European Light Industries Innovation and Technology (ELITT) Project

The European light industries innovation and technology (ELIIT) project aims to bolster SMEs' competitiveness in the textile, clothing, leather and footwear industries (TCLF). Its main goals are to 

  • promote the uptake of novel and innovative technologies by these SMEs, as a key element to guarantee their competitiveness 
  • boost international opportunities and innovation prospects for these SMEs in the single market and beyond
  • promote collaboration between TCLF SMEs and technology providers/owners

The ELIIT project aims to reinforce the innovativeness and competitiveness of the TCLF industries as well as other related industries (new technologies, materials, e.g.) by promoting cross-fertilisation between sectors that would find it difficult to cooperate without hands-on support.

The call will support 25 selected partnerships addressing technology innovation and transfer in the European industry, allowing the advance to the most innovative products, materials, processes and business models with highest added value and new entrepreneurship models, ensuring long-term competitiveness, interaction with commercial key stakeholders and IPR protection  for SMEs. The budget of the call is €70,000.

ELIIT will help these SMEs overcome obstacles in the integration, implementation and use of advanced technologies as well as those in the way of entering niche-markets for new products and services. Finally, it will create stronger synergies between active businesses in TCLF industries and providers and owners of technology.

The ELIIT project is funded by COSME Programme, which aims to increase SMEs’ easier access to finance and enhance market access, improve environmental conditions as well as promote entrepreneurship.

Project applications will be made on the electronic monitoring system. (EMS Platform)
