Launched in 2008, the "Eco-innovation" initiative is part of the EU's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (EIP), set up to support innovation among SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) and to improve their competitiveness.
The eco-innovation initiative bridges the gap between research and the market. It helps good ideas for innovative products, services and processes that protect the environment become fully-fledged commercial prospects, ready for use by business and industry. In doing so the initiative not only helps the EU meet its environmental objectives but also boosts economic growth.
You can also apply for funding through this initiative!
