Upcoming Horizon Europe “Climate, Energy and Mobility” calls – opportunities for you?

2nd December 2022 at 3:56 pm

The European Union’s economy and society are legally obligated to become climate-neutral by 2050 according to the European Climate Law. To achieve this goal, Cluster 5 of Horizon Europe’s Pillar 2 (“Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness”) provides funding for a wide range of projects related to Climate, Energy and Mobility. We here provide a detailed overview of the soon-to-be-published Cluster 5 Work Programme for the coming two years of Horizon Europe.

The Cluster 5 Work Programme 2023-2024: Climate, Energy and Mobility

Which kind of research and innovation projects will be funded specifically? Some of our project partners of previously funded H2020 energy and mobility projects, such as CHEOPS, Mat4Rail, and the recently started Horizon Europe projects PEPPERONI and SOLARX, have already asked us this question. Hence, we had a closer look at the pre-published Work Programme. The many funding opportunities available in Cluster 5, reaching from clean energy systems, new solutions for smart grids and energy systems, to climate-neutral and sustainable mobility systems, can seem overwhelming even for experienced applicants. Luckily, they can be grouped into the following six destinations, each with a clearly defined expected impact.

Select the most relevant destination below and find the related call topics of the 2023-2024 Work Programme next to it, or directly jump to the infographic showing the submission deadlines 2023.

Based on draft Work Programme – slight changes are possible.

Plan your proposal writing resources

Identifying the most fitting call topic for your research and innovation project is already a task on it’s own, but allocating the resources to develop a high-quality proposal is a huge time investment by all partners and especially by the project coordinator. For the 2023 calls in Cluster 5 of Horizon Europe, the below infographic provides an overview of all opportunities in relation to their submission deadline as a resource for you to identify relevant calls and plan your grant application.

How accelopment supports your Climate, Energy and Mobility proposal

Once you have identified a suitable call for your project idea (possibly with our Strategic Grant Planning service), we can offer you professional Proposal Writing support based on your needs, whether you want your proposal to be reviewed, only require help for certain parts of it or would like a full proposal writing support. With our long-standing experience from successful climate, energy and mobility proposals in Horizon 2020 and now also in Horizon Europe (ROADVIEW, SOLARX and PEPPERONI) we can help you write a competitive research and innovation project application. Contact us to discuss what we can do for you.
