The Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) national contact point within Malta Enterprise is organising an info session on February 13th, 2013 to provide details on the upcoming Call for Proposals for projects to be assisted through the Eco-Innovation programme.
Managed by the European Commission, the programme seeks to assist European organisations to overcome the barriers of bringing environmental products, services or processes to the market.
In this manner, besides helping beneficiary organisations increase their market penetration, the programme would also be contributing towards improving Europe’s eco-innovation successes. The initiative provides funding for projects in various sectors that mitigate environmental impacts or promote a more efficient use of resources, such as material recycling, buildings, the food and drink sector as well as greener business.
While participation from SMEs is particularly encouraged, other private companies, public bodies, education establishments, NGOs and associations may also benefit from the programme.
The Call for Proposals for projects to be assisted through the CIP’s Eco-Innovation programme shall be opening in the coming weeks, with the information session providing further details on the programme itself, assistance on how to apply, as well as information on other support which is available for eco-innovative projects.
The event is free of charge. However, due to limited seating capacity, booking is required by February 12th, 2013 at noon. Booking is to be done though the NCP website by following this link: http://tiny.cc/rnntrw.
