About the Climate Innovation Vouchers grant scheme

The Climate Innovation Vouchers grant competition is part of the EBRD’s Climate Change Finance and Technology Transfer Center (FINTECC) program, supported by the EU under the EU4CLIMATE initiative. It has been implemented in Ukraine since 2017 by the NGO Grinkubator.

“Climate Innovation Vouchers is one of the largest grant competitions in Ukraine for innovators in the field of green and climate-friendly technologies. Ukraine was the first country in the EBRD region to launch the Innovation Vouchers program.

The competition supports Ukrainian small and medium-sized businesses that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency and prevent climate change. Grants of up to 50 thousand euros cover 75% of the costs of the services applied for.

Companies can use the voucher to develop and implement green innovations at various stages of their business – from intellectual property protection and industrial prototype design to product certification and design of their production facilities.
