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.
