The Accelerator program, supported by the European Union, EIT Food manages a multiannual and multidisciplinary program, aimed at alleviating the water shortage in Southern Europe.  

The main objective of the program is to support the transition to water saving in the entire Southern Europe and contribute in a long-term plan to the decrease in the water consumption, waste and pollution in Europe.

The Accelerator program has launched competition for startups and entrepreneurs that offer solutions for lower water consumption or improvement of the water management.

The program will support the innovators to find their way onto the market and to be useful. 

This invitation is within the InnoWise Scale activities of the water shortage project. The InnoWise Scale activities have been created to allow flexible water management in various sectors, optimize and match the water supply and demand, and to encourage the preparedness for climate change while promoting innovations and entrepreneurship especially in the Mediterranean region, and in particular Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, and Spain.

∙ Market-oriented trainings and 3-month mentoring period  
∙ Network sessions with potential end-users 
∙ Sectoral contests with an option for implementation of a demo site at the end of the period with potential end-users, based in countries from Southern Europe.
