EU FP7 Energy Calls 2013 Published

In July 2012 the European Commission (EC) published the new FP7 Calls for Proposals for 2013.


As part of a €10.8 billion budget for research and innovation agreed for 2013, the EC has announced an €8.1 billion euro package of calls for proposals under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7). This will be largest ever package of FP7 calls, as well as the final, with the new funding programme Horizon 2020 being launched from 2014 onwards (until 2020).

  • The calls address key concerns faced by Europeans where action at EU level is essential. €4.8 billion will be invested in thematic areas, with specific priorities to preserve oceans and water, better use of raw materials, efficient energy, promote efficiency in the processing of biological resources, develop smart cities and tackle issues such as public sector reform, brain research and anti-microbial resistance.
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises, recognised as vital for innovation, are given special incentives to participate with a total package of €1.2 billion.
