By the deadline of the Call 2012, 284 proposals had been submitted, a figure comparable to the 279 proposals submitted to the Call 2011.
In total 916 participants from 31 countries took part in the proposals. Green Business and Recycling are the two sectors that attracted the most proposals.
The total funding request is roughly EUR 196 million. Almost 67% of the participants taking part in proposals are SMEs as in previous calls and less than 7% of the projects do not involve any SME.
Approximately half of the proposals (53%) involve participants from different countries and 76% have more than one partner.
A new Eco-innovation call will be published in Spring 2013.
