The Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe, headquartered in Hungary, would like to bring to readers' attention an interesting opportunity to support innovative start-ups in the sustainable energy sector.

The European Institute of Technology's (EIT) Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) for InnoEnergy calls for proposals for innovative climate friendly energy technology ideas. Two among six fields in which KIC InnoEnergy strengthens European innovation and entrepreneurship is Renewable Energies and Smart technologies. It does this through so-called 'innovation projects.'

KIC’s co-financing ranges from Eur 0.5 – 5m for technology start-ups and lasts 3 years while the technology is expected to be on the market in five.

KIC InnoEnergy's current call for proposals for innovative energy technology ideas closes on Nov. 20, 2014. More information is available here:
