Research-Innovation Projects Catalogue

The selected research&innovation projects resulting from the 2014-2018 calls  of Horizon 2020 Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials can be found in Research Projects Catalogue.

The catalogue can be considered as a partner search tool. The partners of the projects in the Catalogue could have potential to propose new proposals for the next calls. It is suggested to review the projects and contact partners to send collaboration requests for the next calls in interest.

Climate Action and Sustainable Development

As key Horizon 2020 objectives, climate action and sustainable development are relevant to all areas of the programme. At least 35% of Horizon 2020's total budget is expected to address climate action, while at least 60% is expected to involve sustainable development.

When drafting your proposal, please specify your project's expected contribution to climate action and sustainable development objectives, if applicable. For further information please follow this link.

EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy

In a world where populations are growing, consumer demand is increasing, and natural resources are becoming scarcer and more expensive, the circular economy is the business model of the future. Designing more durable goods, recycling, repairing and reusing reduce the environmental impact and cuts consumption of new resources and costly waste disposal.

In this respect, The European Commission adopted an ambitious Circular Economy Package, which includes revised legislative proposals on waste to stimulate Europe's transition towards a circular economy which will boost global competitiveness, foster sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs.

The Circular Economy Package consists of an EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy that establishes a concrete and ambitious programme of action, with measures covering the whole cycle: from production and consumption to waste management and the market for secondary raw materials. The annex to the action plan sets out the timeline when the actions will be completed.
