Nineteen energy projects selected for Horizon 2020 funding



The projects will contribute to establishing new knowledge in the area of renewable energy, wind energy and sustainable fuels, they will develop next-generation technologies for renewable electricity, heating and cooling, or they will focus on social aspects of the energy transition. After signing grant agreements with INEA, they will receive €86.4 million of EU funding to carry out their research and innovation work plans.

The projects have been selected for funding in a two-stage evaluation process. In total, 200 projects proposal were submitted in the first stage of the evaluation, of which 55 passed to the second round of the evaluation. Finally, 19 projects were selected for EU finding.
