Within the 2018-2020 Horizon 2020 Work Programme, there are still a number of calls for R&D projects that explicitly cover wind energy. They are mostly about unlocking the full cost-reduction potential of wind energy and the development of next generation technologies. They include innovative operation and maintenance strategies and novel solutions to offshore balance of plant. Dedicated funding is available for both onshore and offshore wind, and there are specific calls on floating wind.
The webinar will explore these upcoming Horizon 2020 calls for projects, and give you some useful tips on how to successfully apply for funds. We’ll also tell you about funding opportunities under the separate Connecting Europe Facility and discuss more broadly the type of services WindEurope offers to its members when it comes to EU funding.
