Facing Tomorrow Decrease text size Text Size Increase text size

Energy, transport, environment, competitiveness, innovation - Europe today is up against extraordinary challenges but also great opportunities.

Whether it is about promoting smart energy use and renewables, creating markets for eco-innovative technology, switching to more sustainable freight transport, or getting better information to SMEs, environmental improvement and commercial success can actually work together.

To deliver efficiently high-quality European programmes and initiatives in these areas, the European Commission has set up the Executive Agency for Competitiveness & Innovation (EACI) to manage on its behalf:

Intelligent Energy – Europe
The Power to Innovate

Marco Polo
New Ways to a Green Horizon

Enterprise Europe Network
Business Support at Your Doorstep

When Business Meets the Environment

IP Projects
Putting Ideas to Work


We are an international team of specialists on energy, the environment, business support, multi-modal transport, communication and finance.

Our team includes both European Commission officials and professionals coming from the private sector. They all share a commitment to the European way of linking competitiveness and innovation with environmental protection and a cleaner energy future.

The remit of Executive Agencies is to help the Commission manage EU programmes more efficiently and with improved results.
