EU firms offered €44m to tackle climate change
Businesses across the EU are invited to bid for a share of €44.26 million (£35.4m) to develop innovative ways to respond to the challenges of climate change, writes Energy Live News.
It is the first call for proposals under the European Commission’s LIFE Climate Action sub-programme, which runs from 2014 to 2020 and will provide €864 million (£692m) in total in the next seven years.
It is aimed at supporting “better communication, co-operation and dissemination on climate mitigation and adaptation action”, the Commission said.
Interested firms are being encouraged to start preparations “as early as possible” by developing their project ideas, forming partnerships with relevant stakeholders and identifying complementary financial support.
