Got a great business project that could make Europe greener but don’t know how to get it off the ground?
The 2013 Eco-innovation call for proposals may be for you!


The European Commission grants up to 50% co-funding to finance green ideas: the total budget available for the 2013 Call is almost 31.6 Million Euros.

Calls are open to all legal persons…


This call is open to all legal persons that are based in eligible countries but the priority will be given to Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). Clusters of applicants and projects which demonstrate a European added value and have a high potential for market replication are strongly encouraged.



Although priority will be given to SMEs* and private beneficiaries, the calls for proposals are open to all legal persons located in one of the following countries:


27 EU member states
Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein
Albania, Croatia, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Israel, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey
Other non-EU countries provided they have the appropriate agreement in force (currently none).


Also see Article 4 of the CIP legal base.


* SMEs are defined as enterprises which employ fewer than 250 persons and which have an annual turnover not exceeding €50 million, or an annual balance sheet not exceeding €43 million.
