Further funding opportunities
The "Public Private Partnership on Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency" (SPIRE) will fund innovative projects for resource and energy efficiency.
Several Member States have established Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) issuing calls for proposals that might also be interesting in the context of research on climate change:
In the case of projects published as programme co-funding actions, the EU co-finances funding programmes or calls for proposals of other entities, e.g. national research organisations and research funding organisations.
A detailed overview on currently running ERA-Nets and more public-public partnerships is available on "ERA-LEARN".
Within the framework of the "European Institute of Innovation and Technology", the Knowledge and Innovation Community "Climate-KIC" brings together climate-related aspects of education, research, technology and entrepreneurship.
There are further thematic synergies with other EU-funding instruments like the new LIFE programme (2014-2020 / NKS) of DG Environment.

The following topic-related Directorates-General (DG) occasionally allocate funding via calls for proposals and calls for tender:
