As part of Horizon2020, the European Union funding programme for research and innovation, The Open and Disruptive Innovation (ODI) scheme aims to foster the development of fast-growing, innovative SMEs with promising, close-to market ideas bearing high disruptive potential in the digital area.

Disruptive innovation encompasses any innovative concept, product and service that create new markets by applying new sets of rules, values and models which ultimately disrupt and/or overtake existing markets by displacing earlier technologies and alliances.

The ODI is implemented through 3 dedicated phases namely, "Concept Feasibility", "Demonstration & Prototyping", "Support towards Commercialisation" of the prototyped Solution. With a dedicated budget of 90M€ for 2014 and 2015, ODI will use the same rules and means as the SME instrument of the Horizon 2020 programme. Funding is allocated for the first 2 phases through a selective process.
