Environmental sustainability: Climate action & adaptation

The Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the operational unit of Austrian Development Cooperation, and the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) have teamed up to explore how to best support projects that aim to address a problem through frugal innovation.

Their joint project “Innovation for a Better World – Advanced Solutions for Sustainable Development” looks into the feasibility and implementation possibilities of a new funding scheme for frugal innovation in the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia) and Austria.
