The European Climate Initiative (EUKI) is once again calling on 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 EUR 1 million.

EUKI’s call for funding for cross-border climate action projects is open until March 12. Eligible to apply are non-governmental organizations, regional and local authorities, non-profit enterprises, and educational institutions from European Union member states and the candidate or potential candidate countries.

The regional focus is on Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, the Baltic states, and the Western Balkans. At least half of the project funds will go to countries in the said regions.

EUKI supports cross-border cooperation, so it will fund climate projects involving partner organizations from multiple European countries.

Projects will be funded in six areas

This year the program areas are climate-neutral mobility, climate policies, carbon capture and storage (CCS), energy transition and climate-neutral buildings, just transition, and sustainable economy.

EUKI is an instrument of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMVK). Selected project ideas will receive funding ranging from EUR 120,000 to EUR 1 million.

“Germany is to be climate-neutral by 2045. In Europe, we have set the goal to achieve this by 2050. We can only meet those challenges when we think of climate action, energy policy, and economic development as joint European efforts. This is why we use EUKI to fund projects which accelerate the phase-out from fossil fuels and the expansion of renewable energies across borders”, said German Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Robert Habeck.

EUKI has invested a total of EUR 95 million in European climate action through 210 projects

Since its establishment in 2017, EUKI has invested a total of EUR 95 million in European climate action through 210 projects. Its activities involve around 440 organizations, local authorities, schools, public institutions, and universities across the EU.

EUKI highlighted its contribution to implementing ideas for accelerating climate action and cooperation in Europe and added that its latest call is aligned with the measures from the EU’s packages Fit for 55, aimed at reducing emissions by 55% by the end of the decade, and REPowerEU.
