Give Your Feedback to the EU Green Deal Calls
To respond to the urgency and ambition of the European Green Deal, Horizon 2020 will support additional Green Deal related research and innovation with a call worth close to €1 billion. Now you have the opportunity to contribute with your input to the calls.
Fighting climate change and making Europe climate-neutral by 2050 is one of the main priorities of the European Commission.
In support of this priority, the Commission is reinforcing Green Deal-related research and innovation with a dedicated call for proposals under the current research and innovation programme - Horizon 2020.
Projects are expected to deliver tangible and visible results relatively quickly and show how research and innovation can provide concrete solutions for the Green Deal main priorities.
The call will support:
- pilot applications, demonstration projects and innovative products
- innovation for better governance of the green and digital transition
- social and value chain innovation
Supporting projects within offshore renewable energy and circular economy
The call is structured into 11 areas. There are eight thematic areas reflecting the eight key work streams of the European Green Deal, and three horizontal areas that cut across the eight thematic areas and offer a longer-term perspective in achieving the transformations set out in the European Green Deal.
There are several areas relevant for our cluster members, in particular:
- Call area 2: Clean, affordable and secure energy
- Call area 9: Strengthening our knowledge in support of the European Green Deal
Note that there could also be topics of interest in the other areas.
