Medium Grants 2022
Status of the procedure
The deadline for submitting project outlines for this year's ideas competition was 13 December 2022, 23:59 (CET).
In total, the IKI Office at ZUG received 143 outlines out of which 71 were submitted for the funding priority on youth and 72 for the funding priority on private sector cooperation. 108 implementing organisations from 14 different countries participated in the ideas competition.
All submitted outlines will be subject to a formal review. All ideas that do not meet the minimum formal requirements according to the funding announcement will be informed of this in early 2023. All other outlines will be evaluated with regard to their project concept. This review process is expected to continue into May 2023.
The final selection among the highest ranked project outlines is made by the German Federal Ministry for the Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and the German Ministry for the Environment, Natural Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
A maximum of ten projects worth up to 6.5 million euros in public funding will be selected. The selected projects are expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2023 at the earliest.
The 2022 call of the IKI Medium Grants focuses on:
- Accelerating towards net-zero emissions: Empowering youth-led initiatives for climate change mitigation
- Innovative collaborations between civil society and the private sector for integrated biodiversity and climate protection
