On 19 May 2020, the European Commission published a consultation open to the whole R&I community to help shaping the main features of a dedicated Green Deal Call under Horizon 2020.
Fighting climate change and making Europe climate-neutral by 2050 is one of the main priorities of the European Commission and endorsed by the European Council in December 2019. In support of this priority, the Commission is reinforcing Green Deal-related research and innovation with a dedicated call for proposals under Horizon 2020.
The Green Deal call will mobilise research and innovation to foster a just and sustainable societal transition. Projects are expected to deliver tangible and visible results relatively quickly and show how research and innovation can provide concrete solutions for the Green Deal main priorities. In addition to technological development and demonstration, the call encourages experimentation and social innovation for new ways to engage civil society and empower citizens.
The deadline for giving online feedback for the call is 3 June 2020.
