At Zafiro, we offer support at every stage of the application process from the complex evaluation
of the concept and funding possibilities to partner search, budgeting, EIC Accelerator proposal writing, preparation for the interview in Brussels, Grant Agreement preparation and project management.
Each stage requires close and honest cooperation to guarantee a successful outcome.

Pre-writing Analysis

Before we start writing the proposal we need to get to know you better. We conduct deep and complex project analysis to assure that the EIC Accelerator (Horizon 2020) is the right programme for you.

Concept and funding possibilities

We assess if your project is a good fit for the EIC Accelerator, meets formal requirements and has a chance for a grant.

Innovation and market potential

We check if the project solves a particular problem and if there is real market demand for the solution. Innovation should survive on the market and generate revenue.

Technological feasibility

We will determine the technology readiness level (TRL) of your project. To take part in the EIC Accelerator, your innovation needs to be TRL 6 or higher.

Analysis of the company

We will evaluate if the European Commission will consider you as a “non-bankable” company which is necessary for the EIC Accelerator.

EIC Accelerator Proposal Writing

While writing EIC Accelerator proposals we focus on factors that will increase your chances of winning a grant. We also support preparation of all the paperwork that goes with the proposal. We will keep you updated with all the news and changes in the EIC Accelerator and Horizon 2020.


We share with you our knowledge regarding the EIC Accelerator and best practices and educate about the programme.

Work plan

We support in creating a reasonable work plan which is a key factor in the evaluation process and project execution.

Proposal evaluation

Have you submitted a proposal on your own without success? We will help you rewrite it to increase your chances.

Interview in Brussels

We support in 2nd step of evaluation process: presentation and interview in Brussels.

Project Management

All the paperwork, general preparation, contact with the EC reporting can take a lot of time and cause bottlenecks in the project. We will ensure that you are on track and well prepared for the deadlines and reporting.

We will guide you through the Grant Agreement signature to speed up the process. We will make sure you fulfil all the legal and administrative requirements from the EC within the deadlines. You will get our support in the communication process which is crucial in the EIC Accelerator implementation.
