Brussels, BE – January 4th, 2013– EUROGIA+, the EUREKA low-carbon energy technology cluster, announced its latest call (CALL 10) for the submission of transnational low-carbon energy related research and development projects.

EUROGIA+ is a bottom-up, industry driven, market oriented programme which addresses all areas of the energy mix, from renewable energy to efficiency, and reduction of carbon footprint of fossil fuels.

All innovative project ideas that will reduce the carbon footprint of energy production and use potentially qualify for EUROGIA+ label. This quality label facilitates the access of project ideas to the national and regional funding, and also to the interested customers. Although the label is very selective, the goal of EUROGIA+ is to help important collaborative project ideas to become reality. Since the start of EUROGIA+ in 2008, 28 transnational projects were labeled representing close to 120 M€ of project costs.

Successful national funding is helped by the fact that the public authorities from EUREKA countries liaise closely with EUROGIA+ throughout the project evaluation process.

The process is one of continuous submission with 4 cut-off dates per year. The next cut-off date is February 15, 2013 by close of business.  And the projects submitted in the preliminary project outline format will be reviewed by the EUROGIA+ technical committee on March 14, 2013 in Munich and necessary feedback will be provided to move to the full proposal stage. 

Applicable conditions and details of the submission process can be found on www.eurogia.com or by contacting the EUROGIA+ Secretariat, contact@eurogia.com, + 32 2 502 18 14.
