Fund your Mission

Creating more livable places requires significant investments into the future of our municipal infrastructure and services, as well as facilitating investments of private sector and citizens to become climate neutral within the next decades. We cannot finance those activities solely from existing municipal budgets. Third party grants will play a significant role in leveraging your existing funds and multiply the impact to reach your mission faster.
 

Europe’s Mission Cities have identified a financial need of ca. 1Billion EUR
per city per year to become climate neutral by 2030

 

BABLE will support you in accessing the right funds to implement your mission. We have won >70% of our funding applications in 2023 and have access to over 8,000 funding options in Europe’s largest funding database. We guarantee that we will find a fund that suits your needs.

We share the risk together with you as most of our fee is only payable when the funding is positively judged by the funding authority. We possess a proven track record of successfully securing suitable public grants or support for every legitimate inquiry we've received. Despite budget constraints arising from various crises, such as those related to refugees and the impact of Covid, our commitment to creating impact in cities remains unwavering.

 

Who this is for

  • Public Authorities: Municipalities, Regions

  • Municipal Companies

  • Utility Companies

  • Public Transport Companies

  • Economic Development Agencies

  • Other public entities eligible to receive public grants

 

Why you trust BABLE

BABLE is Europe’s leading facilitator and marketplace for B2G innovation. We bring public sector buyers and private sector solution providers together to implement solutions 50% faster and more efficiently.

We have:

  • Access to more public funding available than ever before (e.g. from the 1 trillion EU budget)

  • Europe’s largest database of funding options for the public sector with <8,000 entries

  • Access to project partners with a proven track-record of innovations from across Europe

  • A track record of accessing many different types of funds: structural funds, Horizon, Interreg, regional, national from many countries in Europe

  • Largest Use Case database in Europe including costs and how it was financed in over 200 cities

  • Access to private sector (>500 companies) as Europe‘s largest marketplace

  • We share the risk – we get paid once you have a public grant

 

Timeline

Timelines are heavily dependent on the type of fund – here are some examples:

  • EUCF (European City Facility) ca. 3 weeks prior to deadline (actual work is 2-3 days but collecting the information on the project from the city will take several weeks)

  • Regional structural funds 4-6 weeks (normally those have a 10 page-initial concept and again most time is spent on collecting documents and identifying the focus)

  • Interreg Funds (2-4 months) – highest priority here is to get a cross-regional consortium and the commitments in place

  • Horizon Funds 4-5 months

We are an agile team that can react quickly but contacting us today puts us faster on the pathway to success.
