New EU funding opportunities for energy efficient buildings
The European Commission published its draft document in the area of energy technologies with a list of project proposals for which funding will be available under the EU’s biggest research and innovation programme, the Horizon 2020. The paper is made public in order to inform future applicants about the expected main lines and help them to prepare for the upcoming period already ahead of the final publication of the work programme expected for mid-October.
From Monday until Wednesday a series of events will take place dedicated to the new draft Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017 entitled ‘Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy’. The event targets potential applicants, fund seekers to the calls for project proposals under the H2020 challenge, which builds around 3 priorities including Energy Efficiency, Low Carbon Technologies and Smart Cities and Communities. Research and demonstration activities within the area of Energy Efficiency will focus among others on buildings and heating and cooling.
The new Work Programme will be presented on 14 September, whereas in-depth sessions on various calls will be held on 15 September. A brokerage event in the field of energy technologies will follow on 16 September, attracting the attention of a wide spectrum of companies, universities and researchers from Europe and beyond to foster the creation of consortia and partnerships for the upcoming calls.
