Public-Private Partnerships

The "Public Private Partnership on Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency" (SPIRE) will fund innovative projects for resource and energy efficiency.

Public-Public Partnerships

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:

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.

Other EU-Programmes
