Novel materials for supercapacitor energy storage (RIA)


Proposals under this Call should address the challenge for new material concepts to be used in supercapacitors to at least double the energy density over current technologies reduce cost and minimise or eliminate use of CRMs.

Detailed Call Description

Compared to batteries, supercapacitor energy density is low and they use more expensive and critical raw materials (CRMs). Proposals submitted under this topic should include a business case and exploitation strategy, as outlined in the introduction to this Destination.

Synergies are possible with any relevant projects from topic HORIZON-CL5-2022-D3-01-11 from Cluster 5, and respective cooperation activities are encouraged, however R&I on energy system integration, compatibility of systems or standards for participation in flexibility market is excluded. The topic is open for international cooperation, while excluding industrial competitors from countries where the safeguarding of IPRs cannot be guaranteed.

Call Total Budget

€ 23,00 million

Financing percentage by EU or other bodies / Level of Subsidy or Loan


EU contribution per project: between  €4,00 and €6,00 million
