Bristol, United Kingdom

The Eco-innovation initiative is about reducing our environmental impact and making better use of resources. This means developing products, services and processes that protect the environment, reduce CO2 emissions, use resources efficiently, promote recycling and so on. There are five main strands to this initiative:

  • Materials recycling and recycling processes;
  • Sustainable building products;
  • Food and drink sector;
  • Water efficiency, treatment and distribution;
  • Greening business.

The best Eco-innovation projects are those that can be replicated across the EU. The initiative does not fund R&D projects. Instead, it aims to bridge the gap between R&D and commercialisation – the ideas must be developed, feasible and also viable in the long-term to qualify for funding.

Applying for Eco-Innovation funding is a competitive process, and only the best project proposals will be selected for funding. This Information Day will give you essential information and advice on how to develop a good project proposal and apply successfully. It also offers the chance to find out about finding project partners from across Europe,  and hear about a successful Eco-innovation project.
