LC-SC3-JA-5-2020: LONG TERM EU-AFRICA PARTNERSHIP FOR RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ACTIONS IN THE AREA OF RENEWABLE ENERGY

 

Deadline:  Deadline extended until 28 April 2020

17:00:00 Brussels time

RIA, Research & Innovation Action

The proposal will establish a long term partnership through the implementations of a series of strategic and joint research and innovation actions, and their related research capacity building actions, whose development has been conceptualised and whose essential elements have been so far developed by the project PRE_LEAP_RE http://www.leap-re.eu/ granted under topic LC-SC3-JA-2-2018. The scope of the research activities supported under the long term partnership would include adaptation of renewable energy technologies to the African environmental, social and economic conditions through joint research efforts on renewable energy technologies.

LC-SC3-RES26: DEVELOPMENT OF NEXT GENERATION RENEWABLE FUEL TECHNOLOGIES FROM CO2 AND RENEWABLE ENERGY  (Power and Energy to Renewable Fuels)

Deadline:  Deadline extended until 28 April 2020

17:00:00 Brussels time

RIA, Research & Innovation Action

Proposals will develop next generation renewable fuels for energy and transport, which improve substantially (beyond the state-of-the-art), the performance regarding energy efficiency as well as cost of the conversion of direct renewable energy (e.g., sunlight) or renewable electricity and /or heat to liquid or gaseous renewable fuels from CO2. Targeted fuels should also provide very low engine-out emissions.

Proposals are expected to bring the technology from TRL 3-4 to 4-5.

LC-SC3-RES-1-2020: DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION OF RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES

Deadline: Deadline extended until 28 April 2020

17:00:00 Brussels time

RIA: Research & Innovation Action

Support will be given to activities which focus on converting renewable energy sources into an energy vector, or the direct application of renewable energy sources. This topic calls for bottom-up proposals addressing any renewable technology currently in the early phases of research. Activities also might include energy materials, catalysts, enzymes, microorganisms, models, tools and equipment, as long as those are strictly connected to the energy conversion process. Developments in sectors other than energy may provide ideas, experiences, technology contributions, knowledge, new approaches, innovative materials and skills that are of relevance to the energy sector. Proposals are expected to bring to TRL 3 or TRL 4. Beside the development of the technology, the proposal will have to clearly address the following related aspects: lower environmental impact, better resource efficiency than current commercial renewable technologies, issues related to social acceptance or resistance to new energy technologies, related socioeconomic and livelihood issues.

FETOPEN-01-2020: FET-OPEN CHALLENGING CURRENT THINKING

Deadline: Deadline extended 03 June 2020 17:00:00 Brussels time

RIA: Research & Innovation Action

Proposals are sought for cutting-edge high-risk / high-impact interdisciplinary research with all of the following essential characteristics (“FET gatekeepers”):

  • Radical vision

  • Breakthrough technological targets

  • Ambitious interdisciplinary research for achieving the technological breakthrough and that opens up new areas of investigation. 

The inherently high risks of the research proposed shall be mitigated by a flexible methodology to deal with the considerable science-and-technology uncertainties and for choosing alternative directions and options.

ICT-36-2020: DISRUPTIVE PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES

Deadline: Deadline extended until 17 June 2020

17:00:00 Brussels time

RIA: Research & Innovation Action

The challenge is the development of advanced photonics technologies which have the potential to revolutionise an existing application sector or to create completely new applications and markets.

The focus is on the following themes (sub-topics):

  1. 3D light field and holographic displays

  2. Packaging and module integration for photonic integrated circuits (PIC)

  3. Light to Fuel

  4. Next generation biophotonics methods and devices as research tools to understand the cellular origin of diseases.
