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:
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.

Autoship is, as the name suggests, an acronym for autonomous ship. Just like with self-driving cars, the possibilities of an unmanned boat seem endless. It can create more efficient freight transport, around the clock deliveries and these are just a few of the examples. The project has two societal challenges.
At first, De Vlaamse Waterweg was a bit hesitant as their experience with FP7 or Horizon 2020 projects was limited and they had not been very successful up until then. The fact that they were already doing basic research on the topic of autonomous boats, and the administrative help of NCP FLanders helped De Vlaamse waterweg to cross the line and get involved.
