Eco-innovation – Smart and Green
Challenges such as resource scarcity, climate change and the growing world population dramatically increase the demand for new and sustainable solutions. Eco-innovation plays a critical role by reducing the impact on the environment and opening new business opportunities through developing sustainable, innovative products, technologies, services and business methods.
The ECREIN+ project aims precisely at supporting eco-innovation at regional level, thereby encouraging green growth and reducing Europe’s ecological footprint.
This project is supported by the INTERREG IVC programme financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund
The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
