Finalisation of the fifth wave Horizon 2020 Energy evaluation

The evaluations of the fifth wave of Horizon 2020 Energy calls for several energy topics for the H2020 Energy call on Low Carbon Energy (H2020-LC-SC3-2020-NZE-RES-CC) and the Cross Cutting call on Low Carbon and Circular Industries (H2020-LCCI-INEA-Single Stage) under the 2018-2020 Horizon 2020 Work Programme have been finalised.

Overall, the budget for the call was €112 million distributed over 12 single stage topics, all managed by INEA and under the responsibility of DG Research & Innovation and DG ENER. 

INEA received 272 project proposals by the deadline of 1 September 2020, requesting almost €1.4 billion. 

In total, 21 projects with a requested budget of over €122 million have been selected for funding and have been invited to start the preparation of the grant signature.
