Ecomondo is the reference event in Europe and the Mediterranean Basin for the green and circular economy. It is an international hub where all the drivers of the ecological transition are discussed.
This year the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) and the European Research Executive Agency (REA), representing the European Commission, joined forces to bring visitors up to speed with the latest European funding opportunities for the circular economy.

One-to-EU meetings are a way for visitors to get useful insights into the funding opportunities available and the application process. These one-to-one talks with CINEA, EISMEA and REA were held at the EU Stand and online throughout the event.
Visitors could book a slot with experts dealing with one of the several funding programmes that the Agencies implement.
At the EU Stand, Ecomondo visitors had the chance to hear directly from successful projects and companies about how European funds helped bring their innovative ideas to life. Beneficiaries showcased their results and solutions, and representatives were on hand to talk at stand n. 69 in Hall Sud (South).
