Innovation Fund - Open/Forthcoming Calls

The next round of Large-Scale Projects Call is planned to take place in November 2022. As part of the REPowerEU plan, the Innovation Fund will include a REPowerEU window in its next Large-Scale Projects Call that aims to accelerate the decarbonisation of industry with the aim of transforming Europe’s energy system. The budget for this call will be increased to 3 Billion EUR. The call will consist of the General Window which allows submissions of project proposals in the usual categories (as was done in the past), but now will also include the REPowerEU window.

The RePowerEU window will support:

(1) innovative electrification and hydrogen applications in industry

(2) innovative clean tech manufacturing (such as electrolysers and fuel cells, innovative renewable equipment, energy storage or heat pumps for industrial uses)

(3) mid-sized pilot projects for validating, testing and optimising highly innovative solutions.

NB pillar (3) is applicable to all sectors and categories under the Innovation Fund.
