The Innovation Fund is one of the world’s largest funding
programmes for the demonstration of innovative low-carbon
It will provide around EUR 10 billion of support over 2020-2030 for the
commercial demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies, aiming to
bring to the market industrial solutions to decarbonise Europe and support its
transition to climate neutrality.
The goal is to help businesses invest in clean energy and industry to boost
economic growth, create local future-proof jobs and reinforce European
technological leadership on a global scale.
This is done through calls for large and small-scale projects focusing on:
innovative low-carbon technologies and processes in energy-intensive
industries, including products substituting carbon-intensive ones
carbon capture and utilisation (CCU)
construction and operation of carbon capture and storage (CCS)
innovative renewable energy generation
The application process is simplified and has only one stage:
full application, where projects are assessed on all the selection criteria,
as specified below.
Project proponents can apply by submitting their projects when there is an open
call for proposals.
The first call for proposals for small-scale projects is open until 10 March
- Projects can apply via the EU Funding and Tenders portal.
