Horizon Europe is the European Union (EU) funding programme for the period 2021 – 2027, which targets the sectors of research and innovation. The programme’s budget is around € 95.5 billion, of which € 5.4 billion is from NextGenerationEU to stimulate recovery and strengthen the EU’s resilience in the future, and € 4.5 billion is additional aid.
This topic is expected to support regions and communities participating in the Mission with developing investment strategies, including identifying, innovating and, to the extent possible testing, solutions that help to mobilise financing and resources, throughout their transformational journey to climate resilience.
This topic contributes to the three objective of the Mission and corresponds to one of the thematic research and innovation areas described in the Mission Implementation Plan aiming to mobilise and improve the articulation of funding and financing from various public and private sources at different levels (EU, national, regional and local).
The proposal is expected to:
Proposals should take in full consideration the local dimension of climate change and climate adaptation strategies, clarify how they would ensure a meaningful engagement with local communities as well as stakeholders to ensure, among others, the mobilization of local knowledge, and outline how they would contribute to achieving a just transition to climate resilience.
Proposals should include a process and criteria for how to identify the regions and communities most relevant to become test beds for the proposed solutions, starting from those where Mission relevant activities are already ongoing. Priority should be given to regions or communities with high vulnerability , limited resources and/or low adaptive capacity to climate change impacts.
EU contribution per project: between €5,00 and €6,00 million
