€1 BILLION for research & innovation to boost the EU´s green recovery. The European Commission tables €1 billion under Horizon 2020 to respond to the climate crisis, provide more protection to Europe’s biodiversity and habitats under threat, and accelerate a sustainable recovery.
The world is facing unprecedented challenges and Europe is responding with the European Green Deal, an ambitious yet attainable action plan for a systemic transformation towards a climate-neutral continent by 2050.
Research & Innovation has the capacity to accelerate a just and sustainable socio-economic transition by demonstrating innovative solutions. Responding to the urgency of the challenges at hand, the Horizon 2020 Green Deal Call aims for tangible results in the short- to medium-term. It focuses on rapid scalability, dissemination and uptake to bring real benefits to Europeans in their daily life.
"The €1 billion European Green Deal call is the last and biggest call under Horizon 2020. With innovation at its heart, this investment will accelerate a just and sustainable transition to a climate-neutral Europe by 2050. As we do not want anyone left behind in this systemic transformation, we call for specific actions to engage with citizens in novel ways and improve societal relevance and impact". - Mariya Gabriel, EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth
