The European Commission is making €200 million of funding available for projects in the areas of electricity, smart grids, cross-border carbon dioxide network and gas infrastructure, as part of the first call for proposals under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Energy in 2018.
There is still a need to simplify EU funding for research after 2020, according to a new Briefing Paper from the European Court of Auditors. The paper was prepared for the European Parliament and the Council as input to their discussions on the successor to Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme.
Details are taking shape for the LIFE programme’s 2018 Calls for Proposals. A provisional calendar for the call for proposals publication is now available online. Please note that schedules are currently indicative and that more information will be made public closer to the publication date for each call.
