Horizon Europe is the main Research and Innovation Funding Programme of the European Commission.

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the previous Funding Programme. There are no longer calls, but projects can run until 2024.

Digital Europe

Digital Europe is a Funding Programme focused on bringing digital technology to businesses, citizens and administrations.

Other EU Funding

There are many other relevant EU funding programmes, managed by several agencies and directorates.

Cluster 5


Climate, Energy, Mobility

In Horizon 2020 these were separate clusters but climate, energy and mobility have been merged into one to create synergies that contribute to the general goal of climate neutrality by 2050.

About this programme

This cluster encompasses the transition to greenhouse gas neutrality of the energy and mobility sectors by 2050 at the latest. While most calls are about creating a more sustainable environment, there is also attention for other topics like safety in transport or digitization of the energy and mobility sector. These objectives take shape through 6 destinations:

  1. Destination 1 fosters climate science, enabling the transition to a climate-neutral and resilient society;
  2. Destination 2 supports different cross-cutting technologies and solutions for climate, energy and mobility applications;
  3. Destination 3 is about making a more sustainable, secure and competitive energy supply;
  4. Destination 4 aims to make energy use more efficient, sustainable and inclusive;
  5. Destination 5 increases the competitiveness and climate/environmental performance of different transport modes;
  6. Destination 6 advances mobility services and solutions at system level for passengers and goods.

 

As an integral part of Horizon Europe, a set of EU Missions aims to deliver solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing Europe. Notably two missions (adaptation to climate change + climate neutral and smart cities) are linked to cluster 5 as they both strive to achieve the same objective of a more climate-friendly industry and society.

The New European Bauhaus also merits to be mentioned in this respect as it focuses on a more esthetic, inclusive and sustainable way of construction.

EURHISFIRM - Long-term data for Europe

EURHISFIRM designs a world-class research infrastructure (RI) to connect, collect, collate, align, and share detailed, reliable, and standardized long-term financial, governance, and geographical data on European companies. EURHISFIRM enables researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to develop and evaluate effective strategies to promote investment, economic growth and job creation. The RI provides the tools for long-term analysis highlighting the dynamics of the past and the way those dynamics structure our present and future.

The EURHISFIRM European project received € 3.4 million in financing from the European Commission through the H2020-INFRADEV-2017-1 research infrastructures call. The project started with a consortium of eleven research organisations (including University of Antwerp) from seven European countries.
