Apply for Innovation Fund
Get our assistance in one of the world's largest funding programmes for the deployment of net-zero and innovative technologies.
The Innovation Fund program, administered by the European Climate, Infrastructure, and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), plays an important role in advancing the European Union's commitment to sustainable and green initiatives.
With a substantial budget, it supports pioneering projects aiming at commercial deployment of innovative low-carbon technologies, with the objective of bringing to the market industrial solutions to decarbonise Europe and support its transition to climate neutrality. Meanwhile it stimulates economic growth and job creation.
In addition, the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) - the world’s largest carbon pricing system – provides the revenues for the Innovation Fund and it is used as the main driver for the programme.
What industry sectors are targeted for decarbonisation?
- Heavy industry, including green/renewable substitute products
- Cleantech Manufacturing, including renewables and energy storage
