KIC InnoEnergy has announced the launch of a new call for proposals dedicated to boosting the effectiveness and speed of the go to market process of green innovations in Europe.
KIC InnoEnergy is an organisation that brings together education, research and industry into public-private partnerships to boost sustainable and related energy technology innovations across Europe. KIC InnoEnergy supports research institutions, companies and universities with the last stage of the go-to-market process for innovative sustainable energy products and services. KIC InnoEnergy was created in 2010 by 27 shareholders from 8 EU countries, all of them key players in the energy field coming from industries, research institutions and universities. Their public-private support programme, which holds an investment portfolio of € 400 million per year, will assist organisations with high-potential projects to establish a development and commercialisation consortium, and provide successful applicants with significant financing and business development support. To be eligible, consortiums must fulfil a number of conditions. Besides having successfully achieved the proof of concept, they must gather at least 3 European partners from the research and/or industry sectors.
