European Social Innovation Catalyst Fund

The Call for the successor for the European Social Catalyst Fund (ESCF) has now been published. This new fund will be called the European Social Innovation Catalyst Fund and will designed to ensure adequate financial support for replicating and scaling demonstrably successful social innovations in service of the five EU Missions. 

1. Adaptation to Climate Change 
2. Cancer 
3. Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities 
4. Ocean, Seas, and Waters 
5. Soil Health and Food 

​The EU contribution under the Horizon Europe Research and Innovations Programme will be €30 million to represent 25% of the costs of replication and scaling relevant proven social innovations.
