What are the upcoming EU public funding opportunities for the wind energy sector? The European Commission has opened a call for research and innovation projects, with a €1 billion budget under Horizon 2020, to help the EU to deliver on the Green Deal. There are two thematic areas of interest for the wind industry:
• “Area 2”: Clean, affordable and secure energy and;
• “Area 3”: Industry for a clean and circular economy.
The European Commission has also announced that over 35% of spending in the next EU long-term budget will contribute to climate objectives. How will this rule affect the wind energy sector’s access to public funding?
Carlos-Eduardo Lima de Cunha, Policy Officer at DG RTD in the European Commission, will talk about the ongoing green deal call and will give us as sneak peek into Horizon Europe priorities, the Next EU Research & Innovation programme. Francesca Harris, Project Manager at INEA, will help you navigate the priorities and rules for applicants for the latest Horizon 2020 call by sharing some tips and tricks on how to apply. She will also present the newer and simpler rules for the Horizon Europe programme, the next big funding programme starting in 2021.
The sofa talk will be moderated by WindEurope’s EU funding advisor, Sabina Potestio. This webinar is reserved for WindEurope members only.
