EIT Food Impact Funding Framework

Funding Finder
EIT Food

Help create lasting and sustainable change in the food system.

EIT have launched a competitive, open food Impact Funding Framework to promote ambitious, long-term collaboration that will lead to food systems change to benefit us all.

EIT want their co-investment to have a real impact. They are looking for proposals from consortia based around lead organisations who can work effectively, move quickly, and are supported by high-quality research, communications and impact assessment expertise.

The funding is focussed on two separate areas – larger-scale collaborative programmes, and innovative single projects. You don’t need to be an EIT Food partner to apply. There are many submission windows, with the Framework open until at least September 2025.

The next submission deadline is 11th July.

Collaborative Missions Programme Funding

EIT want to co-fund and co-resource alliances and collaborative programmes designed to:

  • Improve the impact of diet on obesity and non-communicable disease
  • Reduce food-system-related environmental harms
  • Deal with the threats posed by food integrity and complex supply chains

As well as connecting key stakeholders, from companies and research organisations to social enterprises and regions, your programme should engage beneficiaries, whether people, business or organisations, with clearly defined impact needs.

For more detail on the impact targets and measures we need your help to reach, see Funding for EIT Food Collaborative Missions Programmes document.

For technical guidance on your Collaborative Mission’s Programme application, see Handbook for applicant’s using Salesforce document.

If you’re interested in this funding opportunity, EIT encourage you to make use of the Expression of Interest (EOI) form. You can share key information about your idea and how you can see your consortium working with EIT Food. This informal conversation starter should enable us to help you better connect across our community and teams as you shape your proposal.

Find out more information, FAQ and apply on the EIT Food website.
