Since 2017, there are regular Call for Ideas. The 2019 Call for Project Ideas opened on 1 March 2019. The deadline for submission of project outlines is 12 April 2019.
Please find below an overview of the terms and conditions for EUKI project financing in the framework of the call for project ideas. Please refer to the Information on the Financing of Projects within the EUKI for further detail.
The EUKI finances climate projects. Implementers must have their official office in an EU member state or be registered there. In accordance with the regional focus of EUKI, implementers from Central, Eastern, South-Eastern and Southern Europe in particular are encouraged to submit project proposals.
Bilateral and multilateral consortia are equally sought; however, the maximum number of implementing partners (in addition to the implementer) is three. The number of implementing partners should be proportionate to the project’s goals and funding and to the distribution and weighting of each set of tasks.
The following approaches can be pursued individually or in combination: Capacity development; creation of networks; implementing policies and measures, developing strategies and conducting feasibility studies; dialogue formats, dissemination projects and education.
EUKI supports climate projects with actors in EU member states, primarily the Central, Eastern, South-Eastern and Southern European Member States.
Financing is aimed at projects which operate at either national, regional or local level. The projects are intended to support implementation and/or further development of national strategies and policies.

local/regional/national government agencies

A grant between EUR 50,000 and at most EUR 350,000 may be made for each project. The term of the project should be at least four months. Projects must be concluded in March 2022 at the latest.
