New EUKI Call for Climate Action Project Ideas 2022

Date: 25 November 2022

Dear friends of climate action in Europe,


On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), we are happy to open the seventh call for project ideas of the European Climate Initiative (EUKI). 


Are you working for a non-profit entity? Do you have a convincing idea on how to contribute to climate change mitigation in Europe? Are you ready to cooperate with up to four partners in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe including Baltic states and Western Balkan states? Then find suitable partners, get together, sketch an ambitious, feasible concept note and make sure to submit it by 13 January 2023


Please find all relevant information on the new EUKI call for ideas here


Once your project idea is selected, we provide you with between 120,000 and 1,000,000 EUR for the implementation. Projects shall cover one of EUKI’s seven new topics: Climate Policy, Energy Policy, Socially Just Transition/Just Transition, Climate-Neutral Mobility, Climate-Friendly Financing, Sustainable Economy, CO2 Removals and Sinks.


Any questions? Please join our virtual EUKI Info Day on 7 December and register here. Our team will give an overview of all relevant modalities, such as funding objectives, formal requirements, and our evaluation procedure. 


Now it’s your turn. We are excited to receive your creative ideas - together for a climate-neutral Europe! 


Yours Sincerely,


Stefan Bundscherer and Ulrike Leis

Programme Directorate of the European Climate Initiative (EUKI)
