Innovate2PREVENT program

Are you looking for support to develop and advance your innovative, socially inclusive and/or data-driven circular economy solution? Then the Innovate2PREVENT program could be for you!  

Innovative solutions will be required to contribute to one of three tracks:  

Track 1: Solutions contribute to extending product lifetime, closing resource loops or optimizing resource efficiency through reuse, refurbishment or repair of electrical and electronic equipment   

Track 2: Upstream solutions in the plastics value chain that contribute to phasing down single-use plastics, fostering alternatives to plastics and reuse models, contributing to closing material loops, improve recyclability, increase secondary raw material use, and/or reduce environmental pollution.   

Track 3: Solutions contribute to a circular economy by integrating digital solutions and interoperable data models across product life cycle stages and value chains.   

Innovate2PREVENT program is your perfect match if:  

  • Eligible applicants are charitable companies, social businesses and NGOs registered in low- and middle-income countries1 .  
  • The organisation must be able to demonstrate a minimum of 3 years of working experience (copies of financial statements of the past 3 years). 
  • The innovation contributes to a circular economy either through Track 1, 2 or 3.  
  • Supported activities must be sustainable, necessary and contribute to a charitable purpose according to German charity law*. 
  • Selected solutions must take social aspects and potentially harmful consequences into account.  
  • Fluency in English is a prerequisite for participation in the program since the program will be in English. 
  • Applicants do not need to be a member of the PREVENT Waste Alliance.
