The European Commission has received 401 proposals for projects in the areas of climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials by the call deadline on 7 March 2017.
All in all, a budget of about 341 million is available in 2017 for the Societal Challenge "Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials" of Horizon 2020.
JPI Climate, together with major European Research Funding Organisations represented in the JPI Climate Governing Board, with a number of relevant Research Performing organisations and various new partners, has submitted two project proposals under this Societal Challenge: "Strengthening INternational Cooperation on ClimatE Change REsearch" (SINCERE) and "Assessment of Cross(X)-sectoral Climate Impacts and Pathways for Sustainable Transformation" (AXIS).
In March and April, independent expert panels will evaluate the proposals selecting the best ones for funding. The Commission will then inform all applicants - within five months of the call deadline - whether or not their proposal has been successful.
Applicants who answered to a two-stage call will be informed in May of the outcome of the remote review: those invited to submit a full proposal will have to do so by 5 September 2017.
