As cities strive for climate neutrality by 2030, they encounter significant hurdles on the path to sustainability. Many cities identify lack of funding as one of the main barriers for getting started with their critical infrastructure upgrade projects and technological investments.

In reality, there is an abundance of financing options available for European cities. By contrast, in our experience, many cities and regional authorities have limited experience and/or capacity to tap into these. If you are a smaller or medium-sized city or regional authority and curious to get a better basic understanding of general financing and specific European funding opportunities for your city’s journey towards NetZero, then please join us at this open webinar. The webinar takes place Thursday 14 December 11.00 – 12:00 UTC+1 (European central time).

Investing only 1 hour of your time, you will:

  • Acquire a basic overview of the European climate innovation and infrastructure financing landscape
  • Exchange with peers to understand and compare your own challenge priorities with those of others
  • Get a glimpse into upcoming concrete climate innovation funding opportunities for cities along with some guidance how to successfully approach these

The webinar is open to cities and regional authorities from countries eligible under EU Horizon framework programme.

It is free of charge but there is only a limited number of seats to be allocated on a first come-first serve basis. You can secure your seat by clicking "Register for the event" on this page.
