Horizon Europe Calls

Horizon Europe is the European Union’s research and
innovation funding programme for 2021-2027.

In total, it will offer around €95.5 billion of funding to consortiums working on R&I activities that help addressing diverse global challenges, including climate change, clean energy transition and sustainable mobility.

Under Horizon Europe, battery stakeholders may apply for and receive funding for activities across the entire battery value chain. The first calls for Horizon Europe’s Working Programme for the period 2021-22 have been published in June 2021. The second work programme for the period 2023-2024 has been published in November 2022.

The funding mechanism in Horizon Europe is based on the principle of co-financing. The European Commission allocates grants to specific projects, thus contributing to a defined percentage to the total costs.

Implemented in the framework of Horizon Europe, and with a dedicated budget of € 925 million, the BATT4EU Partnership contributes to meeting the objectives of the R&I programme.
