Danube-INCO.NET informs about funds for energy efficiency and renewable energy

10. Mär 2015

The deliverable identifies possible funding sources in the Danube Region

Danube-INCO.NET partners active in the work package "Tackling Societal Challenges: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in the Bioeconomy" (WP3) published this recent deliverable to inform about funds that allow stakeholders to implement target oriented sustainable R&D and innovation projects on energy efficiency in the Danube Region as well as on related innovation policy measures. Access to external financing is crucial for implementing most projects in this priority field of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR).

Most relevant funding is provided by international donor community, e.g. European Commission as well as national authorities, such as ministries that forward funds of EC. The report indicates such sources of information on future programs.

To inform stakeholders in Danube Region about funding opportunities relevant calls are also published on the Danube-INCO.NET’s project website.
The partners have established direct links to Priority Area 2 (“To Encourage More Sustainable Energy”) of EUSDR and Priority Area 8 (“To Support Competitiveness of Enterprises and Cluster Development") which is operating a WG on “Environmental Technologies and Energy Efficiency”.

This deliverable (D3.10) is a tool to support work of PA’s co-ordinators, steering groups and WG. Direct beneficiaries of the knowledge about available funds are potential applicants, e.g.
• enterprises, particularly SME
• universities and research institutions
• researchers
• municipalities
• other public bodies (e.g. regional governments etc.)
D3.10 is result of an extensive desk research. Additionally members of consortium, which represent 12 of 14 countries of the Danube Region, contributed with information on national funds of their country. The task leader (Steinbeis Donau Zentrum) discussed with external institutions, e.g. Ministries, National Contact Points, in order to get latest information on status of adopting national programmes, plans to publish new calls, etc.
