We’re calling for collaborations between makers and manufacturers and/or manufacturing companies to submit proposals for ideas, service innovations, products or processes.

This call is open to the four OpenMaker accelerating countries (Spain, Italy, Slovakia and the UK), leading to a total of 20 winning projects (five from each country). Each winner will receive up to €20,000 euros. In the North West UK there are also ten smaller €1,000 development awards available to ideas that have an impact in the target areas of Salford and Liverpool.

The winning teams will have nine months to work on their prototypes. During this period, you’ll be invited to take full advantage of the support and mentoring offered, which might be one-on-one meetings, special events or networking opportunities. We’re here to help you.
