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