Published on: 22 May 2024 | Last edited on: 23 May 2024

Horizon Europe Cluster 5 ‘Climate, Energy and Mobility’ aims at climate neutrality in Europe by 2050. Therefore, the Horizon Europe Cluster 5 calls for proposals focus on tackling climate change. Fifteen calls for proposals opened on 7 May with a deadline on 5 September 2024. The calls are open to projects triggering innovation and development in three key sectors in Europe.

What are the Horizon Europe Cluster 5 calls about?

Horizon Europe Cluster 5 calls focus on tackling climate change by:

  • better understanding its causes, evolution, risks, impacts and opportunities
  • making energy and transport sectors more climate and environmentally friendly, efficient, smarter, safer and resilient by leveraging innovations.

The calls are open to projects triggering innovation and development in three key sectors in Europe:

  • batteries
  • Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM)
  • multimodal transport, infrastructure and logistics.

They aim to accelerate the market deployment of these sectors while ensuring their sustainability and innovation. The budget for these calls comes from the Horizon Europe budget for Cluster 5: Climate, Energy and Mobility of around 15 billion euros.

Batteries (Batt4EU Partnership)

The call on batteries includes the following topics: 

  • sustainable high-throughput production processes for stable lithium metal anodes for next generation batteries: budget 8.00 million euros; Innovation Actions (IA): funding rate 70% 
  • post-Li-ion technologies and relevant manufacturing techniques for mobility applications (generation 5): budget 15.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA): funding rate 100% 
  • size & weight reduction of cell and packaging of batteries system, integrating lightweight and functional materials, innovative thermal management and safe and sustainable by design approach: budget 16.00 million euros; Innovation Actions (IA)

Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM)

The calls on Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) include among others the following topics:

  • centralised, reliable, cyber-secure & upgradable in-vehicle electronic control architectures for CCAM connected to the cloud-edge continuum: budget 12.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA)
  • scenario-based safety assurance of CCAM and related HMI in a dynamically evolving transport system: budget 14.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) 
  • orchestration of heterogeneous actors in mixed traffic within the CCAM ecosystem: budget 12.00 million euros; Innovation Actions (IA) 
  • AI for advanced and collective perception and decision making for CCAM applications: budget 10.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) 
  • robust knowledge and know-how transfer for key-deployment pathways and implementation of the EU-CEM: budget 4.00 million euros; Coordination and Support Actions (CSA): funding rate 100%

Multimodal transport, infrastructure, and logistics

The calls on multimodal transport, infrastructure and logistics include among others the following topics:

  • optimising multimodal network and traffic management, harnessing data from infrastructures, mobility of passengers and freight transport: budget 10.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) 
  • scaling up logistics innovations supporting freight transport decarbonisation in an affordable way: budget 20.00 million euros; Innovation Actions (IA)
  • improved transport infrastructure performance – innovative digital tools and solutions to monitor and improve the management and operation of transport infrastructure: budget 15.00 million euros; Innovation Actions (IA)
  • policies and governance shaping the future transport and mobility systems: budget 3.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA)
  • ensuring the safety, resilience and security of waterborne digital systems: budget 8.50 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) 
  • effects of disruptive changes in transport: towards resilient, safe and energy efficient mobility: budget 7.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) 
  • a new framework to improve traffic safety culture in the EU: budget 7.00 million euros; Research and Innovation Actions (RIA).
