We expect to fund around 22 Pioneer Acceleration projects and 12 Orbital projects in the 2nd GALACTICA call. Budget might be shifted among both vouchers in case there are not enough proposals above the threshold.

Evaluation procedure:

Submitted applications will be firstly assessed for admissibility and eligibility by GALACTICA consortium.

Eligible proposals will be evaluated 2 external experts for Pioneer Acceleration and by 3 external experts for Orbital Projects.

Pioneer Acceleration Voucher

Scope: The main goal is to support the exploration of new cross-sectoral value chains feasibility with focus on developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) connecting two or more of the sectors (aerospace, textile, advanced manufacturing).

Indicative supported activities/ideas:

Maximum financial contribution per project: €20 000

Eligibility: at least 1 SME from EU or UK (consortia welcome).

Orbital Projects Voucher

Scope: implementation of functional prototypes and demonstrators for new cross-sectoral value chains, connecting two or more of the sectors (aerospace, textile, advanced manufacturing), while funding the integration of non-technological innovations for speeding up market match.

Indicative supported activities/ideas:

Maximum financial contribution per project: €100 000

Maximum financial support per SME: €60 000
