BMUV promotes green tech exports from Germany
The BMUV has launched a new funding round "Export Initiative Environmental Protection" (EXI) and calls for project outlines.
The "Environmental Technologies Export Initiative" (EXI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUV) aims to promote, disseminate and strengthen knowledge and application of environmental, resource protection and efficiency technologies as well as the development of innovative (green) infrastructures abroad. According to the BMUV, the funding program also aims in particular to support German innovative companies in internationalizing their environmental know-how. It is aimed at clubs and associations as well as commercial enterprises - especially small and medium-sized enterprises - universities and non-university research institutions. According to the BMUV, funding is available for project ideas in various fields of expertise and action, including those relating to recycling, waste and raw materials management and resource efficiency. One focus of the current funding round is on areas of public services (e.g. water and wastewater management, recycling management). The aim of the export initiative is to ensure that technologies are used sustainably and that their introduction also takes account of local social conditions. The BMUV considers it relevant for the success of the project and its long-term impact to involve local actors and political decision-makers at all levels. In the first stage of the process, a project outline is to be drawn up, which will provide an initial, meaningful overview of the project. Project outlines can be submitted to ZUG gGmbH until April 1, 2023.
