Call for Innovation Proposals 2016 - Sustainable Energy (KIC InnoEnergy)
Sustainable energy: sustainable innovation
A sustainable energy sector needs new products, new solutions and new services. But transforming the spark of an idea into a successful and marketable product can be a long and complex journey. Technical expertise, commercial awareness and access to a variety of skills and resources are critical.
We are looking for businesses with the next big innovation in sustainable energy.
If your business has a proven concept that you think can help change the future of the energy industry, then we can help address the challenges and shorten the journey from lab to launch.
KIC InnoEnergy is the innovation engine for Europe’s energy industry. We invest in businesses and help develop innovative products, services, and solutions that have high commercial potential. We provide access to a deep pool of complementary skills and resources, and connect them to markets and commercial opportunities across Europe.

- Give access to over 160 European project partners to support the development of new products
- Provide investment funding to help make your project a reality·
- Identify market needs and potential customers
- Shorten the time to market for innovative ideas
