About the project

The Climate Innovation Vouchers is one of the largest grant schemes in Ukraine for innovators in green and climate-friendly technologies. It is part of the EBRD’s Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change (FINTECC) programme, which is supported by the EU through the EU4CLIMATE initiative. The Ukrainian NGO Greencubator has been successfully implementing the program in Ukraine since its launch in 2017.

CIV involves Ukrainian small and medium-sized enterprises that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, and prevent climate change. Grants up to €50,000 cover 75% of declared service costs.

Companies can use the voucher to cover the costs of developing green innovations at various stages of business, from prototyping & protecting intellectual property to product certifications & designing their new production lines.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Union launch the new phase of the Climate Innovation Vouchers. After successful implementation in Ukraine since 2017 with EUR 1 million of grant funding, the programme continues to support cleantech entrepreneurs by offering grants to an ecosystem for clean-tech SMEs in Ukraine.

The next CIV phase allocates EUR 1 million in EU grants for Ukrainian companies. Small and medium-sized businesses can receive up to EUR 50,000 to develop climate innovations and green technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy consumption.

The CIV scheme has contributed to the creation of some core technologies at the heart of many Ukrainian green innovations. The project has provided grants and support to companies like the maker of Guinness record-winning e-bikes Delfast; developer of energy-generating solar blinds SolarGaps; producer of energy-saving recuperators PRANA; operators of e-mobility solutions TOKAGO TO-U and Autoenterprise; creator of the portable food safety lab for field detection of mycotoxins in crops BIOsens; developer of metal 3D printing technology using titanium wire xBeam3D, etc.
