EUKI launches 3rd Call for Project Ideas

Date: 01 March 2019

Dear readers,

We are pleased to inform you that the German Environment Ministry has launched the third call for project ideas under the European Climate Initiative (EUKI), running from 1 March to 12 April 2019. In this call, NGOs, think tanks, communities and other not-for-profit entities are invited to submit project ideas aimed at accelerating the implementation of the Paris Agreement in Europe and contributing to intra-European dialogue.
Following a two-step procedure, projects will be selected for financing which contribute to climate action in Europe and to European partnership through cooperation between organisations from different EU member states.

The initiative was launched two years ago and has already initiated over 60 projects involving more than 140 partner organisations. EUKI has financed a broad range of projects, for example the design of a socially just structural change in coal regions or the restoration of peatlands. The target groups of EUKI are governments, local authorities, educational institutions and stakeholders from civil society, the scientific sector and industry, in particular in Central, Eastern, Southeastern and Southern Europe. Networking between different European countries is key for EUKI to promote knowledge transfer and good practice exchange.

Further information on the EUKI, its projects and the application for project financing can be found at
