From NER 300 to the Innovation Fund: knowledge-sharing for innovative clean tech projects

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.
Friday, February 26, 2021 - 10:00

On Friday 26 February, DG Climate Action together with the Joint Research Centre organised an online event 'From NER 300 to the Innovation Fund: knowledge-sharing for innovative clean tech projects'.

The event featured experts from the EU institutions and representatives from projects funded under the NER300, the predecessor of the Innovation Fund supporting innovative technologies in carbon capture and storage, and renewable energy. It was the opportunity for project promoters interested in Innovation Fund support to benefit from lessons learnt from NER 300 projects and to get acquainted with the knowledge-sharing process.
