The EU funding programme on clean technology, the Innovation Fund is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies.
First call is expected to be opened in autumn 2020. The overall budget for Innovation Fund will be 10 billion euros for 2020-2030 programme period. Calls for proposals will be opened every second year.
Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment will organize a national workshop on the Innovation Fund. The objective of the event is to raise awareness of this new funding instrument, as well as other relevant EU and national funding instruments relevant to the low-carbon technologies. Most importantly, the event presents also relevant investment cases under preparation in Finland, as the Member States are asked by the Commission to provide a list of projects or companies that would like to be contacted by the consultant working on the preparations of the first call for proposals, in order to gather real life examples of projects as test cases for various methodologies to be explored.
Enclosed please find the programme of the event.
