eco innovation programmeAchieving competitive growth and environmental sustainability is possible.
This initiative is addressed mainly to organisations that have developed an environmental product, service, management practice or process which has a proven track record, yet is not fully marketed due to residual risks. The Eco-innovation initiative is intended to overcome those barriers to further market penetration and turn these products and processes into Europe's future eco-innovation successes! Applications from SMEs are particularly encouraged.
The Call for proposals 2010 is open. Deadline for submission of applications is 9 September, 17:00 (Brussels local time).
Your project will have to:
  • have an innovative character and substantial positive impacts on the environment;
  • provide significant replication, wider application and broader marketability;
  • be relevant for and show clear and substantial benefits in support of Europe's environmental policy objectives;
  • demonstrate a European added value and an international project dimension;
  • be well thought-through from a technical and project management perspective;
  • be cost-effective delivering higher quality through appropriate effort levels.
