2022 Call Results

We are pleased to announce the results of the 2022 call for applications. We would like to express our appreciation to all applicants for their dedication and hard work in preparing their submissions.

This call aimed to fund projects that develop applicative solutions and provide results for the clean energy transition. The CETPartnership Joint Call 2022 was a 2 stages call structured around 11 Call modules. The Call modules describe specific topics and/or challenges that applicants shall address in their project proposal and was open to participation from across the world.

The tentative start of funded projects is planned for September 23.

This CETPartnership Joint Call 2022 was the first annual co-funded call under the CETPartnership and was co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe Partnership scheme. 

The call was organised as a 2-step-procedure: submission of a pre-proposal followed by an invite to submit a full proposal. Deadline for invited applicants for submitting a full proposal was 27 March 2023, 14:00 CET. 

The CETPartnership aimed to fund projects that develop applicative solutions and provide results for the clean energy transition. Most projects were expected to aim for solutions meeting medium to high technology readiness levels (TRL 6-8), combining technologies, marked related solutions and stakeholder involvement.

Cross-cutting dimensions, beyond technology and resources, needed to be considered to ensure robust transition pathways that are driven by a multidisciplinary perspective. Dimensions included transition pathways, regulations, circularity, digitalisation as well as policy and social aspects.

The call was open to participation from across the world. Applicants from third countries (neither EU Member States nor Countries Associated to Horizon Europe) were free to take part in CETPartnership calls. However, funding that could be applied for in this call was limited to non-EU/EEA applicants eligible for funding from either Associated Partners to the CETPartnership or Partners that have concluded a funding commitment with the CETPartnership.

Each project proposal included at least three independent legal entities from at least three different countries participating in the CETPartnership Joint Call 2022, out of which at least two must be EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries. Consortia may consist of partners from organisations such as universities, companies, industry organisations, local/regional governments, research organisations and NGOs. Some Call modules specified additional requirements or restrictions regarding the types of partners to be included.

The total expected funding of the Joint Call 2022 was over 140 million Euro and consisted of national/regional budgets and European Commission (EC) contribution, so-called top-up. National/regional Funding Partners will provide funding for entities based in their country/region while the EC contribution will be used to top-up project budgets where national/regional funding has been exhausted. The Funding Partners participating in the CETPartnership Joint Call 2022 allocated their budget either to the whole call or to the specific Call modules. Funding Partners allocating their budget to the whole call will dedicate their budget to the specific Call modules after the pre-proposal evaluation or after the full proposal evaluation.

The CETPartnership Joint Call 2022 was a 2 stages application. Only selected pre-proposals could submit a full proposal for 2nd stage evaluation.
