Strategic and targeted support to incentivise talented newcomers
to NMP projects under Horizon Europe

of Talented Newcomers, supported by FIT-4-NMP



"Becoming part of the FIT-4-NMP Innovation Workshop in Dresden was a good opportunity for us. The workshop, which focused on high-performance composites, aligned perfectly with our area of expertise. We learned about the competencies and resources required to participate in Horizon Europe calls and proposals. Subsequently, FIT-4-NMP alerted us to the Hop-on Facility call, and we discovered that we could make a significant contribution to the Multi-level Circular Process Chain for Carbon and Glass Fibre Composites - MC4 project, one of the eligible projects. The grant agreement for the MC4-NOMA proposal has now been signed, and we had begun our work as part of the consortium."

President of NOMA Resins, Poland

Partner of a successful proposal MC4-NOMA 

submitted under Hop-On Facility call HORIZON-WIDERA-2022-ACCESS-07-01.


What is FIT-4-NMP

FIT-4-NMP’s overall objective is to increase the participation of talented newcomers from underrepresented regions in NMP projects in Horizon Europe, as compared to Horizon 2020. Talented newcomers are promising innovation organisations – especially SMEs – that have not participated in H2020 NMP. Meanwhile, underrepresented regions are regions in EU-13, EU-15 and Associated Countries with a low participation in H2020 NMBP. The increase in participation of the talented newcomers will be brought about by connecting them with NMP hotspots, where important NMP innovations are demonstrated, as well as networking them with NMP Top Innovators.
