Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

Horizon 2020 Energy Info Days 2017

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.
Monday, October 23, 2017 - 00:00

The Horizon 2020 Energy Info Days presented the new funding opportunities and innovative schemes offered by Horizon 2020’s Work Programme in 2018-2020. Applying for funding is a competitive process, and only the best project proposals will be selected. If you would like to know more about the type of projects we will be looking for, you can listen to the recordings form the event and download presentations.



The content of the event was structured across three days:

  • Day 1 (Mon, 23 Oct 2017) introduced the overall policy background and the Horizon 2020 work programme and covers funding opportunities for Global Leadership for Renewables, Decarbonisation of Fossil Fuels and other cross-cutting issues
  • Day 2 (Tue, 24 Oct 2017) guided the participants on Smart Cities & Communities and Energy Systems funding opportunities
  • Day 3 (Wed, 25 Oct 2017) focused on Smart & Efficient Energy funding opportunities

Have a look at the full agenda.
