CIP Eco-innovation Programme National Info Day

This EU funded 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. A more efficient use of resources is a must for the competitiveness of businesses. Eco-innovation is a way of turning this challenge into an opportunity. In doing so the initiative not only helps the EU meet its environmental objectives but also boosts economic growth. 

Funding is aimed at SMEs and supports post-research activities in the following areas:

  • Materials recycling and recycling processes;
  • Sustainable building products;
  • Food and drink sector;
  • Water efficiency, treatment and distribution;
  • Greening business.

Enterprise Ireland will be hosting an information day on the CIP Eco-innovation Programme on Friday 10 May 2013

Applying for Eco-Innovation funding is a competitive process, and only the best project proposals will be selected for funding. The Information Day 2013 will give you essential information about the initiative as well as advice on how to develop a good project proposal and apply successfully before the next deadline of September 2013.
