European Partnerships bring the European Commission and private and/or public partners together to address Europe’s most crucial challenges through targeted joint research and innovation initiatives. They are a key implementation tool of Horizon Europe and contribute significantly to achieving the EU’s political priorities.

Beginning of June 2021, 11 new European Part-nerships were launched to boost investments to tackle major climate and sustainability challenges. To achieve a green and digital transition the total commitments amount to around €22 billion for the period from 2021 to 2030.

This substantial funding allows the European Partnerships to pursue innovative solutions on a large scale, for example:

  • to tackle emissions from energy-intensive industries and hard-to-decarbonise sectors, such as shipping and steelmaking;
  • to develop and deploy high-performance batteries, sustainable fuels, artificial intelligence tools, data technologies and robotics;
  • to generate long-term positive impacts boosting European competitiveness and technological sovereignty and create jobs and growth.

The eleven European Partnerships are:


  1. European Partnership for the European Open Science Cloud.
  2. European Partnership for Artificial Intelligence, Data and Robotics.
  3. European Partnership for Photonics (light-based technologies).
  4. European Partnership for Clean Steel – Low Carbon Steelmaking.
  5. European Partnership Made in Europe.
  6. European Partnership Processes4Planet.
  7. European Partnership for People-centric Sustainable Built Environment (Built4People).
  8. European Partnership towards Zero-emission Road Transport (2Zero).
  9. European Partnership for Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility.
  10. European Partnership for Batteries: Towards a competitive European industrial battery value chain.
  11. European Partnership for Zero Emission Waterborne Transport.
