You can apply as an individual, as a team or as a company.
If you apply as an individual or a team, and if you are selected to enter ESA BIC Turin incubation program, you must be able to incorporate your start-up before signing the Incubation Agreement.
If you are applying as a company, your legal entity must be no more than 5 years old to be considered eligible.
The call for ESA BIC Turin is always open. There are usually 3 selections each year: their cut-off dates will be regularly posted on this website.
The evaluation procedure is carried out in two stages:
First stage: The Tender Opening Board (TOB) takes place after the submission deadline is closed and it assesses if all formal requirements have been met. This is a crucial step to staying in the application process.
Second stage: The Tender Evaluation Board (TEB) meeting takes place after the TOB to evaluate the submitted documents and the start-ups’ performance at a pitch and Q&A session. The TEB evaluates each of the applicants against the evaluation criteria and takes a decision whether or not the start-up will be invited to sign an incubation contract.
Yes! If your application is rejected, you will receive feedback that will help you improve it and re-apply within the next cut-off date.
The incentive amounts to a maximum of €50,000 of which 50% (€25,000) is co-funded by Regione Piemonte.
Incentive granted to the Incubatee that originates from Regione Piemonte falls under the terms of the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 651/2014 of 17 June 2014 (Article 22) as amended.
The whole incentive cannot cover any VAT. Therefore, all expenditures must be reported as net amounts.
Only in exceptional circumstances, when an appropriate product or service cannot be found in Italy. However, exceptions should be discussed and approved by ESA BIC Turin in advance.
The reference number is a coding chosen at will by the start-up to identify documents.
Each start-up/team must specify the type of support required between technical and IPR support and business one. If admitted to the program, a detailed work plan will be drafted together with the I3P mentor during the kick-off.
