SELECTION PROCESS FOR NEW PROJECTS
NEFI is one of three supported showcase regions within the Austrian RTI Energy Showcase Initiative with the aim to decarbonise the producing and energy-intensive industry.
Funded by means of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK), the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund is supporting with this call further innovative implementation projects within the three existing flagship regions. NEFI is especially supported by the international expert council SSAB – Scientific and Strategic Advisory Board. The SSAB evaluates according to a defined catalogue of criteria and a three-stage evaluation system.
OPEN CALL FOR IDEAS
NEFI is looking for project ideas for the energy future in industry, in line with the programme targets of the present call.
Within the framework of the NEFI_Lab, project ideas are developed in Open and Project Cycles with the aim of developing three-page project outlines. During a hearing, the progress of the showcase region is presented to the Climate and Energy Fund annually and the collected project ideas are presented to an FFG jury, which finally decides which projects are invited to submit a full proposal.
If you have a project idea suitable for the NEFI innovation fields or for intelligent energy solutions for the manufacturing and energy-intensive industry, please contact us.
