Calls for proposals

Open calls

Our current Innovation Fund calls for proposals are:

The IF23 Call will close on 9 April 2024. The IF23 Auction will close on 8 February 2024.

For more information about the IF23 Auction, please visit our Competitive bidding page.

In February 2023, we launched a market survey to prepare the IF23 Call and identify the market needs in terms of project pipeline. We presented the survey’s main results to the Innovation Fund Expert Group in March. In addition, we organised a stakeholder consultation in June on the new sectors eligible under the Innovation Fund, following the revision of the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) Directive.

Previous calls

Prior to the IF23 Call, we ran 3 large-scale calls and 3 small-scale calls between 2020 and 2023. You can find out more information about each of our previous calls by visiting the dedicated pages.
