The European Green Deal

20 NEW Calls for Proposals in 11 areas - with a total budget of 1 billion Euros

The Green Deal initiative is the European Commission’s roadmap, aiming to make the EU climate neutral by 2050 by facing climate change and environmental degradation challenges.

The Green Deal is the EU’s new growth strategy, setting the path for a fundamental transformation of Europe’s economies and societies, promoting the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy, restoring biodiversity, lowering pollution and mobilizing research and innovation to foster a just and sustainable societal transition aiming at ‘leaving nobody behind’.

In support of this priority, the Commission is reinforcing Green Deal-related Research and Innovation with dedicated calls 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. In addition to technological development, the call encourages experimentation and piloting of technologies, and social innovation for new ways to engage civil society and empower citizens.

We invite you to take part in this important initiative
