Funding a green future for Europe
This year the European Commission is taking part in Ecomondo 2021 with several activities.
In particular, CINEA – the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency– will host a series of thematic sessions as part of the Ecomondo official events programme.
In addition, EU funded projects from different programmes will showcase their results and solutions at the EU Stand:
- The LIFE programme
LIFE is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. Created in 1992, it has co-financed thousands of projects.
- European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF)
The EMFAF supports the European Green Deal and a sustainable blue economy by implementing actions in the field of the Union’s Maritime Policy, the Common Fisheries Policy, and the EU international ocean governance agenda.
- Horizon Europe’s Societal Challenge on Smart and Sustainable Transport
This programme develops solutions and services for clean, competitive, safe, smart and resilient transport and mobility.
- Connecting Europe Facility for Transport (CEF Transport)
CEF Transport supports Europe’s transport infrastructure policy by helping implement key projects across Europe.
Besides, CINEA representatives from the programmes mentioned above and from the Just Transition Mechanism (JTM) will be also present at the stand:
- The Just Transition Mechanism is a key tool to ensure that the transition towards a climate-neutral economy happens fairly, leaving no one behind.
Visitors will also have the chance to meet European Commission representatives for one-to-one meetings on funding opportunities.
