EIT Food COVID-19 Bridge Fund

Project Title: EIT Food COVID-19 Bridge Fund Project

Project information: The COVID-19 Bridge Fund supports European agrifood startups that have been affected by coronavirus, as part of the EIT Crisis Response Initiative.

This activity directly contributes to the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As announced in August 2020, EU is investing €5.4 million in 13 high-impact agrifood startups to help the startups to adapt to COVID-19, to continue critical innovation to transform the food systems and to bridge the gap towards the next investment round. A total of €4.088M will come from the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative, and €1.3M of additional funds has been provided by EIT Food to give much-needed extra support to ventures throughout the pandemic.
