European Green Deal Call Webinars

This event is online

With its new priority for a European Green Deal the European Commission plans to make EU’s economy sustainable, by turning the climate and environmental challenges into opportunities.

In Horizon 2020 a new cross-cutting call will be added (release is foreseen on 18 September 2020). The topics of the call reflect the thematic domains of the European Green Deal Communication and its political orientation towards a fair and inclusive transition. Projects are expected to deliver tangible and visible results relatively quickly and show how research and innovation can provide concrete solutions for the Green Deal main priorities. The total budget of the call is €1bn. The deadline for submitting project proposals is expected end of January 2021.

The Belgian National Contact Points, with the support of Enterprise Europe Brussels and NCPs CaRE, are organising two webinars designed to support the Belgian Research & Innovation community to take part to this major call. The webinars will take place on Wednesday, September 9th, and Friday, September 11th in the morning.

The first webinar will particularly target Belgian stakeholders having no previous knowledge about the Green Deal call.

On the second webinar, a representative from the European Commission will give full insight into the background of the call and potential applicants will get the opportunity to submit their questions and learn how to find partners.

Participation is free but registration is mandatory for one, or the two webinars. Register here.
