Clean Energy Transition (CET) European Partnership

Closing Date: 23/11/2022

European co-funded partnership under Horizon Europe to enable joint research and innovation programmes, from regional to national and global level, to make Europe a frontrunner in energy innovation and eventually the first climate-neutral continent.

The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) is a multilateral and strategic partnership of national and regional research, development and innovation (RDI) programmes in European Member States and Associated Countries aiming to boost and accelerate the energy transition and to support the implementation of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan). The partnership builds on 15 years of transnational cooperation in nine energy relevant ERA-Nets is co-funded by the European Commission under Horizon Europe (Cluster 5 Climate, Energy and Mobility).

The CETPartnership aims to empower the clean energy transition and contribute to the EU’s goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, by pooling national and regional RDTI funding for a broad variety of technologies and system solutions required to make the transition.

The European Partnership enables 50 national and regional RTDI programme owners and managers from 30 countries to align their priorities, pool national budgets of €210 million for two joint calls in 2022 and 2023, as well as to implement annual joint calls from 2022 to 2027.

The CETP First Call is structured into thematic modules. Each Transition Initative (TRI) will develop one or two Call modules based on their strategic topics and content, allowing to cover the whole spectrum of their specific SRIA challenges.
