The Innovation Fund of the European Union is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies. As part of the preparation of the first call for proposals under the Innovation Fund, planned for 2020, the European Commission is organising sectoral workshops. On 3 December, there will be a workshop on Circular Economy in relation to the Innovation Fund.
In these workshops, the Commission presents the Innovation Fund and the essential elements to be developed for the first call, such as further elaboration of the selection criteria, their scoring and weighing, relevant costs, calculation, monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emission avoidance, milestones for disbursement and recovery, knowledge-sharing requirements, project development assistance. It is a good occasion to learn more about the opportunities that the Innovation Fund offers to circular economy projects and to showcase relevant technologies that could be funded.
