A total of EUR 35 million is available for the selection procedure. The ideas competition will be coordinated and implemented by the IKI Secretariat.

Applications may be submitted by federal organisations, non-governmental organisations, business enterprises, universities and research institutions at home and abroad, as well as by international and multilateral organisations such as development banks and United Nations agencies. Interested organisations must prove that they possess a strong network of local partners. 50 percent of the funding will go to local, national implementing organisations.
