The EUREKA Cluster Eurogia, together with EUREKA Public Authorities of the participating countries have perceived a common cross domain interest for Technology-driven green transition projects addressing issues such as Energy preservation, Sustainable manufacturing, Bioresources and Biodiversity.
The aim of this Call is to boost the productivity, competitiveness and environmental sensitivity of European industries through using innovative technologies to dramatically reduce their environmental footprint.
Green transition is the mandatory path to achieve the goals for a sustainable environment, the reduction of climate change and a sustainable growth. Some of the targeted challenges to achieve these goals are necessary, but not limited to:
- Carbon-free energy supply,
- Green mobility and Smart cities,
- Smarter housings and constructions,
- Bio resources and environment.
The technologies necessary to tackle these challenges are rapidly developing within a giant market and an ever growing societal concern. In-depth knowledge and leadership in developing and applying them is an essential requirement, if industry is to maintain its leadership in multiple application areas, or take advantage of new opportunities.
This EUROGIA Thematic Green Transition Call is specifically designed to stimulate activity in this important area, through the creation of trans-national collaborative projects in applications that will support economic growth and benefit society as a whole.
Participants are invited to submit applied research and innovation project proposals in the field of Green transition solutions and technologies, indicating, where possible, how they are related to the technological focus area of the participating Clusters most relevant to their proposal.
