Operational program environment (OPE) 2014 - 2020

The OPE 2014-2020 aims to protect the environment and ensure its quality for the sake of Czech inhabitants’ lives. It also aims to support effective usage of resources, elimination of negative externalities of human activity upon the natural environment and alleviate the impacts of climate change. The goal of this program is to reduce emissions, boost energetic efficiency and increase the share of renewables among sources of energy. This OP is financed from the EU Solidarity Fund and EU Fund for Regional Development. The sum designated to this program is 2.5 billion EUR.

The range of applicants is very broad — government institutions, autonomous units, schools, scientific and research facilities, corporate bodies and natural persons may apply. The maximum extent of subsidy is 90 % of project expenditures. One may apply only in reaction to a bid for a specific area of activity. We monitor your opportunities for you.

Prioroty axis 1 — Imporving water quality and decreasing risks of flooding

Goals of this axis:
