The European Commission has decided today to launch a €1 billion call for research and innovation projects that respond to the climate crisis and help protect Europe's unique ecosystems and biodiversity. The Horizon 2020-funded European Green Deal Call is set to spur Europe's recovery from the coronavirus crisis by turning green challenges into innovation opportunities.
The call is broken down into eight principal areas – reflecting the structure of the European Green Deal –, each comprising one to three broad, thematic topics. Alongside these eight core areas, the call features two supporting areas, on knowledge systems and research infrastructures and citizen engagement, respectively.
Area 1: Increasing climate ambition: cross sectoral challenges
Area 2: Clean, affordable and secure energy
Area 3: Industry for a clean and circular economy
Area 4: Energy and resource efficient buildings
Area 5: Sustainable and smart mobility
Area 6: Farm to fork
Area 7: Biodiversity and ecosystem services
Area 8: Zero-pollution, toxic-free environment
Area 9: Strengthening our knowledge in support of the EGD
Area 10: Empowering citizens for the transition towards a climate-neutral, sustainable Europe
