Welcome to i4-GREEN!

The 25th of November 2022 an on-line kick-off meeting took place where the I4-GREEN consortium partners, beneficiaries of Horizon Europe funding, met and presented their role within the project: the Cluster Portugal Mineral Resources (ACPMR, Coordinator), ICAMCYL Foundation, Gevora, Leonore Development, Atalaya, Lain Tech, Nanofabre and the Iberian Sustainable Mining Cluster (ISMC). 

I4-GREEN is a 30-month European project to research and innovate new models for interregional EU collaboration. The project aims to drive and boost green, circular, and social tech deployment through joint investments, to ultimately reduce the EU dependence on imports of Critical Raw Materials and the negative impact on the environment of their extraction and processing. 
The project is focused on the sustainable improvement of the value chain of raw materials and will implement 2 consolidated and profitable pilots in the southern region of Europe (Portugal and Spain) to deploy green circular innovations to the market, searching to achieve replicability in other EU regions by the end of the project. Since this project is an is an Interregional Innovation Investments (I3) Instrument, through these 2 pilots, I4-GREEN will establish an Open Call will be for SMEs developing solutions to cover the pilots’ technological needs. Awarded SMEs will not only have the possibility to collaborate with the pilots through their solution’s deployment but will receive support in the form of business services and financial support. The final goal of these activities is to promote technology transfer, services, and products into targeted sectorial SMEs and to promote cluster collaboration tools involving business services and financial support to SMEs in the ecosystem.
