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 and thus helps to identify effective and efficient pathways and responses to climate change.
  2. Destination 2 supports different cross-cutting technologies and solutions for climate, energy and mobility applications.
  3. Destination 3 is about making energy supply more sustainable, secure and competitive;
  4. Destination 4 is focusing on reducing energy demand of buildings and industry and enabling their more active role in a smart energy system.
  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 aim 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.

ScreenME - Enhancing excellence in screen media entrepreneurship

The Horizon2020 twinning project ScreenME has as its objective to enhance excellence in screen media entrepreneurship at Tallinn University (TLU). To do so, ScreenME has established a network of universities across Europe that aim to improve research into and teaching of entrepreneurship for the screen media industry. ScreenME will develop a teaching course and will kick off research initiatives and projects on entrepreneurial activities in media organisations. The research group on ‘Studies in Media, Innovation and Technology (SMIT)’ of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is partner in the network and is involved in two cross-cutting activities of the project: support for early stage researchers and developing stakeholder involvement.
