366 applications received in the First Open Call

On 31 May 2024, we closed the First Open Call. We received 366 applications from SMEs from 20 EU countries.

SMEs applied for two different funding schemes based on the maturity of their transition projects:  

  • 85 SMEs applied for small-scale projects to change their business models for circular.
  • 281 SMEs applied for large-scale projects to implement concrete actions towards circular products, processes and services.

The projects are currently checked for eligibility and will then be assessed by external evaluators.

In this call, we will support 47 projects with a budget of €1.230.000.

The results will be announced by 6 September 2024.

The next call will open in April 2025.
