Horizon Europe Cluster 5: Climate, Energy and Mobility

Posted on: 19/04/2021

Horizon Europe is the next European Funding Framework Programme following on from its predecessor Horizon 2020. It will run for seven years from 2021 to 2027. The total budget set for the programme is €95.5 billion. There are six Clusters under Pillar 2: Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness. Climate, Energy and Mobility is Cluster 5.

This page should give you all the information you need to have a comprehensive understanding of the Climate, Energy and Mobility Cluster.

We recently recorded a video to give you an overview of the Five Horizon Europe Missions. You can watch it here.

The Climate, Energy and Mobility Work Programme contains funding calls which focus on accelerating the twin green and digital transitions and associated transformation of our economy, industry and society with a view to achieving climate neutrality in Europe by 2050.

We will publish links to each funding call as and when they are made available.
