The European Green Deal, a climate – neutral continent by 2050

Becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our times. “The European Green Deal” – a strategy paper outlining the ambition to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent.

This is the most ambitious package of measures that should enable European citizens and businesses to benefit from sustainable green transition. Measures accompanied with an initial roadmap of key policies range from ambitiously cutting emissions, to investing in cutting-edge research and innovation, to preserving Europe’s natural environment.

Supported by investments in green technologies, sustainable solutions and new businesses, the Green Deal can be a new EU growth strategy. Above all, the European Green Deal sets a path for a transition that is just and socially fair. It is designed in such a way as to leave no individual or region behind in the great transformation ahead.

The Green Deal is expected to have profound consequences for European research and innovation funding. Many of the newly designed calls for proposals will likely be influenced or motivated by this strategy. Whether you work on agriculture, transport, energy systems or industrial processes, familiarizing with the relevant parts of the Green Deal communication is a good investment. It will help you understand upcoming call topics in any European calls and score extra points in the impact section of your proposal.
