An indicative budget of € 320 million is reserved for the Societal Challenge “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials” in 2015 under the Horizon 2020 programme (ie. H2020-SC5-WASTE-WATER-2015 calls).

234 proposals were submitted for one- and two-stage calls on “Growing a low carbon, resource efficient economy with a sustainable supply of raw materials”,
319 address waste-related questions, and
362 propose water-innovation projects

Next steps

In May/June independent expert panels will evaluate proposals submitted for one-stage calls selecting the best ones for funding. The Commission will then inform all applicants – within five months of the call deadline – whether or not their proposal has been successful.

Applicants who answered to a two-stage call will be informed in June of the outcome of the remote review: those invited to submit a full proposal will have to do so by 8 September 2015.
