Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the main Research and Innovation Funding Programme of the European Commission.

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, enabling the transition to a climate-neutral and resilient society;
  2. Destination 2 supports different cross-cutting technologies and solutions for climate, energy and mobility applications;
  3. Destination 3 is about making a more sustainable, secure and competitive energy supply;
  4. Destination 4 aims to make energy use more efficient, sustainable and inclusive;
  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 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.

ROOT - Rolling Out OSNMA for the secure synchronization of Telecom networks

The ROOT project obtained funding under Horizon 2020 topic ‘EGNSS applications fostering societal resilience and protecting the environment’. The project, which ran from November 2020 to July 2022,  aimed to demonstrate the benefit of Galileo OSNMA signal to increase the robustness of critical telecom infrastructures.

The Flanders-based company Septentrio contributed substantially to completing this objective together with the other ROOT partners. The results of the project partially close a gap in the security of telecommunication networks dependent on satellite-derived time, with indirect benefits in curbing illegal attempts to disrupt network services.
