European Commission launches €1 billion Green Deal call

Organised under 10 key focus areas and 20 topics, the European Green Deal aims to tackle the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities of climate change.

As the largest and final call under Horizon 2020, the European Commission is making €1 billion available as part of the European Green Deal.


The Green Deal call is designed to respond to the climate change crisis by providing more protection to Europe’s biodiversity and habitats under threat, and accelerating a sustainable recovery.

  • Innovative land-based and offshore renewable energy technologies and their integration into the energy system (ID: LC-GD-2-1-2020) View call
