Take the stage at the Urban Future Global Conference

The initial aim of the call is to select 3-4 cities that will be invited to present their projects at the Urban Future Global Conference held from 1-3 April 2020 in Lisbon, Portugal during a workshop dedicated to the EU ETS Innovation Fund led by EIT Climate-KIC and the European Commission. Presenters will be selected based on the best match to the purpose of the fund.

The Fund is a new EU funding programme with the potential for €10 billion to be invested by 2030, tangibly supporting the vision for climate-neutral Europe by 2050. In addition to those selected to present, we have a limited number of workshop places for cities that are planning, developing, testing or implementing these technologies. Please register your interest to secure a place. The session will provide space to learn more about financing projects that are meeting the above criteria but requiring additional financial support in order to reach the market with a competitive advantage and viability. If you have any questions on the call, please do not hesitate to reach out to Viera Mockerova (Viera.Mockerova@climate-kic.org) or Joanna Kiernicka-Allavena (Joanna.Kiernicka-Allavena@climate-kic.org).
