EIT Circular Economy Community launches the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Support Call

The Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is a service provided by the European Commission with the aim to help technology providers proposing innovative, green technologies verify their solutions and provide a quality stamp. The ETV process takes the technology through a third-party validation, which assesses the performance of the technology based on independent and credible information using the internationally standards. The end product is an ETV Statement of Verification published on the ETV website and used in business-to-business relations. This enables technology owners to document the reliability of their claims and differentiate them from competitors, and it helps technology purchasers identify innovations that suit their needs.

The EIT Circular Economy Community launches a call to support companies in obtaining the ETV. The call is open until 31.05.2022 (23:59 CEST).
