A new step to support Green Deal innovators across Europe
Last month, the first “Green Deal” funding from the European Innovation Council has awarded over €307 million to 64 game-changing ‘green deal’ start-ups and SMEs contributing to the objectives of the European Green Deal Strategy and the Recovery Plan for Europe. Winning proposals range from innovative solutions for the automotive, aerospace and maritime sectors to advanced materials or Internet of Things technologies.
The results demonstrate the high demand for EIC ‘blended finance’, which combines grant and equity (38 companies, representing €182.6 million in equity investments). Equity investments are through the recently established EIC Fund managing equity stakes on behalf of the European Commission. All selected companies also benefit from exclusive Business Acceleration Services opportunities to support rapid growth and scale.
