Access to finance can be difficult for companies in environmental sectors due to limited information or understanding of new business models or the issues driving them. In addition, there are also challenges in getting from innovation to the market.
Therefore, reliable access to a variety of funding sources is crucial for European companies in green sectors and for the development of the circular economy. A number of grant schemes and public initiatives at national and European level, such as Horizon 2020, provide support to research, demonstration and sometimes pre-commercial activities.
Please note that registration via the Green Week 2016 website is compulsory.
