Open Challenge Call for Innovative Solutions for Improving Air Quality

May 26, 2022

With the support of the European Union, and in partnership with the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), and the European Investment Bank (EIB), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Serbia announced the Open Call for Innovative Solutions for improving Air Quality.

The aim of this challenge is to support the implementation of innovative ideas that will contribute to reducing air pollution and improving air quality at the local level. The application of these ideas in practice will contribute to a healthier environment and further accelerate the green transformation of the economy and society, i.e., the implementation of the Green Agenda in Serbia.

Ten best solutions submitted to the call will receive mentoring and technical support, while co-financing will be provided for at least three solutions, so that these ideas may be applied in practice. All interested local self-government units, public and private companies, small and medium enterprises and research institutions with an idea for air quality improvement, can apply for the call until 27 June 2022.

For all interested applicants, Info days will be held on 1 June 2022 in Novi Sad and on 8 June 2022 in Belgrade. Registration for the hybrid Info Day is available at this link.

The public call has been published within the "EU for the Green Agenda in Serbia" project, which, with the financial support of the European Union and in partnership with the Ministry of Environmental Protection, is implemented by UNDP in cooperation with the Embassy of Sweden and the EIB.
