H2020 Energy Info Days 2017

Take a look at the presentations and recordings of this year's Horizon 2020 Energy Info Days in order to know more about the new energy funding opportunities for 2018-2019.



In the field of energy, the Horizon 2020 Energy Challenge is designed to support the transition to a secure, clean and efficient energy system for Europe and the Work Programme 2016-2017 for 'Secure, clean and efficient energy' is split into four main areas: Energy-efficiency; Competitive Low Carbon Energy;  Smart Cities & Communities; and SME Instrument.

Some activities build on the experience of the  Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) Programme; the previous funding scheme that came to an end in 2013. The latest IEE projects will run until 2017.
