The STAGE Programme announced its first Call for Financial Grants


A new financial support scheme is now available to enterprises to help them transform their operations and become more sustainable, while also supporting EU climate and environmental strategic goals.

During a competitive process, the STAGE Financial Grant Programme will provide up to 50,000 EUR funding per SME in different funding stages to help them attract investment for their sustainability transition. 

Financial support is granted for two types of activities:

  • Preparation of an investment project plan
  • Additional services needed for the investment plan preparation (e.g.  feasibility study; technology audit;  due diligence analysis; prototyping, etc.)

Who can apply? 

The STAGE Financial Grant Programme is open for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from EU member states or Horizon Europe-associated countries. In order to apply for financial support companies first need to join the STAGE network and complete the Initial Assessment for company sustainability. 

The application deadline for the first call is open until 01.11.2023.
