Financing Innovative Clean Teach Conference

On 19 January, policy makers, stakeholders and industries leaders will gather to raise awareness among the community of public and private financiers about the many business opportunities brought about by the EU Innovation Fund.

The European Green Deal has defined the strategy for the development of a globally competitive, resilient and carbon neutral industry by 2050. The European industry is keen to become a front runner of decarbonisation through clean tech solutions with breakthrough technologies. To achieve the latter, the EC has launched the EU Innovation Fund programme, one of the world’s largest grant funding programmes for the demonstration of first-of-a-kind low-carbon technologies to support European industries.
The Innovation Fund is 100% funded by the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) and is expected to provide around EUR 38 billion of support during the period from 2020 to 2030.
