EU Funding for Your Industry
Nanotechnologies & Advanced Materials
Nanotechnologies, which is science and technology at the nanoscale of atoms and molecules, will help address key societal challenges such as climate change, reducing carbon emission, developing renewable energies, more efficient use of resources and addressing medical needs of an ageing population.
A strong scientific, technological and innovation base in biotechnology will support European industries securing leadership in this key enabling technology. To develop competitive, sustainable, safe and innovative industrial products and processes in a number of European sectors like agriculture, forestry, food, energy, chemical and health as well as bioeconomy.
Information and Communication Technologies
The potential and capabilities of modern ICT systems are still growing exponentially fuelled by the progress in electronics, microsystems, networking, the ability to master increasingly complex cyber-physical systems and robots, and progress in data processing and human machine interfaces. These developments provide major opportunities for Europe to develop the next generation of open platforms on top of which a multiplicity of innovative devices, systems and applications can be implemented
Energy & Utilities
To make the transition to a competitive energy system, we need to overcome a number of challenges, such as increasingly scarce resources, growing energy needs and climate change. The Energy Challenge is structured around several specific objectives and research areas such as Reducing enery consumtion and carbon footprint, low-carbon supplies, alternatives fuels, smart grids, public engagement and ICT innovation.
Smart Cities & Transportation
Sustainable development of urban areas is a challenge of key importance. It requires new, efficient, and user-friendly technologies and services, in particular in the areas of energy, transport and ICT. However, these solutions need integrated approaches, both in terms of research and development of advanced technological solutions, as well as deployment.
Manufacturing & Proccessing
The visión for a manufacturing in Europe, highlights the importance of focusing on European impact. Efficiently should focus on key priorities under the common headline co-creation through manufacturing eco-systems related to Smart manufacting systems, Zero-environmental impact with human-driven innovation.
Health & Wellbeing
Responding to this challenge, research and innovation (R&I) under European Funding is an investment in better health for all. It aims to keep older people active and independent for longer and supports the development of new, safer and more effective interventions. R&I under European Programmes also contributes to the sustainability of health and care systems. Where to improve understanding health and ageing, prevention, treatment and managing diseases.
Food & Agriculture
A transition is needed towards an optimal and renewable use of biological resources and towards sustainable primary production and processing systems. These systems will need to produce more food, fibre and other bio-based products with minimised inputs, environmental impact and greenhouse gas emissions, and with enhanced ecosystem services, zero waste and adequate societal value
