If you are active in industry or are a clean tech player, then do not miss the forthcoming calls that the Innovation Fund will open next 23/11/2023.

What’s the Innovation Fund?

The Innovation Fund  is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for the demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies. It will contribute to greenhouse gas reduction, by:

  • improving the risk-sharing for projects. Giving more funding in a more flexible way through a simpler selection process and also open to projects from energy-intensive industries
  • aiming to create financial incentives for companies and public authorities to invest in cutting-edge low-carbon technologies and support Europe’s transition to climate neutrality.
  • focussing on highly innovative technologies and big flagship projects with European value added that can bring significant emission reductions.

€4.8 billion through 2 calls

Next 23/11/23 the EC will open 2 calls to support the purposes set in the European Green Deal on the one side, and the Net-Zero Industry Act on the other side. The Innovation Fund will be the vehicle for such calls.
