EUKI calls for climate projects to apply for grants of up to €1 million

Green Forum
The European Climate Initiative (EUKI) launched a new round of project funding for non-governmental organizations, regional and local authorities, non-profit enterprises, and educational institutions to submit their cross-border climate action projects and receive grants of up to €1 million.

The companies can submit their project proposals until 12 March 2024.

The six areas earmarked for funding this year are as follows: Climate-Neutral Mobility; Climate Policy; Carbon Removals and Sinks; Energy Transition and Climate-Neutral Buildings; Just Transition, and Sustainable Economy. 

„The submitted project proposals should include transnational climate-action measures that involve cooperation between partner organisations from several European countries. The EUKI will finance selected project ideas to the tune of between €120,000 and €1 million each. With over half of the total funding required to go to projects in central, eastern and southern European countries, the Baltic states and Western Balkan nations. To be eligible to participate in the call, organisations must be based in an EU member state, an EU candidate country or a Western Balkan nation”, according to the press release.

The EUKI has established itself as an effective funding programme since its inception in 2017. It has invested a total of  €95 million in European climate action via 210 projects. To date, some 440 organisations, communities, schools, authorities and universities have already helped bring the EU closer to achieving the EU climate targets and the objectives of the Green Deal. These stakeholders are all connected within the EUKI Community.
