HORIZON CL5-2024: 34 Calls on Climate, Energy, and Mobility

Introduction to Cluster 5 of Horizon Europe

HORIZON CL5-2024. Cluster 5 of Horizon Europe is a key initiative of the European Union designed to foster research and innovation in crucial areas such as climate, energy, and mobility. This program aims to address global challenges by funding projects that promote sustainability and resilience. In this article, we will delve into how Cluster 5 is transforming these sectors and how you can participate in its open calls.

Climate, Energy, and Mobility: Three Pillars of Cluster 5

Cluster 5 Horizon Europe focuses on three main areas: climate, energy, and mobility. Each of these areas has specific objectives and seeks to generate significant impacts on society and the environment.

Climate: Mitigation and Adaptation

Climate change is one of the most urgent challenges of our time. Cluster 5 focuses on mitigating its effects and developing adaptation strategies. The projects funded in this area aim to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions: Initiatives that develop carbon capture and storage technologies.
  • Promote renewable energies: Research and development in renewable energies such as solar and wind.
  • Develop resilient infrastructures: Solutions that improve the resilience of urban and rural infrastructures against extreme climate events.

Energy: Transition to Clean Sources

The energy transition is crucial to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and decrease emissions. In this context, Cluster 5 Horizon Europe supports projects that:

  • Foster innovation in renewable energies: Develop advanced technologies for solar, wind, biomass, and other clean energy sources.
  • Improve energy efficiency: Projects that optimize energy consumption in buildings and industrial processes.
  • Develop energy storage technologies: Solutions that enable efficient storage of renewable energy for later use.

Mobility: Towards Sustainable Transport

The transport sector is one of the main sources of CO2 emissions. Cluster 5 seeks to transform this sector by funding projects that promote:

  • Clean vehicles: Development of electric and hydrogen vehicles, as well as advanced battery technologies.
  • Smart mobility: Implementation of intelligent transport systems and shared mobility to reduce the number of vehicles on the roads.
  • Charging and refueling infrastructures: Creation of efficient charging networks for electric and hydrogen vehicles.
