Over Horizon Europe: Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

Horizon Europe Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment-cluster has been created to support project working towards reaching the sustainable development goals (SDGs). To ensure this projects must fit with one of the following 6 specific destinations:

Land, oceans and water for climate action

Achieving climate neutrality by reducing GHG emissions, maintaining natural carbon sinks, and enhancing the sequestration and storage of carbon in ecosystems, including unfolding the potential of nature-based solutions, production systems on land and at sea.

Biodiversity and ecosystem services

Biodiversity will be put back on a path to recovery, and ecosystems and their services are preserved and sustainably restored on land, inland water and at sea. This will happen through improved knowledge and innovation.

Circular economy and bioeconomy sectors. Clean environment and zero pollution

Through sustainable and circular management and use of natural resources as well as prevention and removal of pollution are mainstreamed, the potential of the bioeconomy will be unlocked. Also, a better understanding of planetary boundaries and deployment of innovative technologies and other solutions, such as in primary production, forestry and bio-based systems.

Fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food systems from primary production to consumption

Ensuring food and nutrition security for all within the planetary boundaries. This is achieved through knowledge, innovation and digitalization in agriculture, fisheries, aquaculture and food systems.

Resilient, inclusive, healthy and green rural, coastal and urban communities

In future rural, coastal and urban areas will be developed in a sustainable, balanced and inclusive way. It will be based on a better understanding of environmental and socio- economic drivers of change as well as use of digital, social and community-led innovations.

Innovative governance, environmental observations and digital solutions in support of the Green Deal

The innovative governance models will enable sustainability and resilience. They will be established and monitored through enhanced and shared use of new knowledge, tools, foresight, and environmental observations as well as digital, modelling and forecasting capabilities.

For more elaborate information on eligibility, please see the specific calls.

This call is supporting the destination Circular economy and bioeconomy sectors.

A successful proposal will contribute to all impacts in this destination related to consumers and industry, particularly European industrial sustainability, competitiveness and resource independence by lowering the environmental footprint, enabling climate-neutrality and higher resource efficiency, through increased circularity and a resulting reduction in GHG and air pollution emissions.

Project results are expected to contribute to at least three of the following outcomes:

Increased deployment and market uptake of innovative solutions, through better design, alternative materials, business models promoting reuse, deposit systems, smart labelling in support of the current relevant legal framework.

  • Increased reuse, recyclability and upcycling of packaging and single-use plastics
  • Significant reduction in over-packaging and single-use plastics in consumer goods, food packaging and humanitarian relief items
  • Significant reduction in packaging waste and single-use plastic waste
  • Significant reduction in management costs for the respective waste streams

Projects should demonstrate at large scale and validate innovative solutions that are quantitatively relevant and replicable under diverse economic, geographical and social conditions, and across sectors, including humanitarian response, through better design, alternative materials (including biobased and biodegradable), business models promoting reuse, recycling, upcycling, deposit systems, smart labelling, sensor-based sorting, etc. to tackle over-packaging and single-use plastics in consumer goods, food packaging and humanitarian relief items.

The budget for this call is EUR 18 million and proposals can request a contributions of up to EUR 5-7 million.

This call is supporting the destination Circular economy and bioeconomy sectors.

Projects should deal with one of the three priority material streams (plastics, textiles, electronics), taking into account the complexity of some materials currently in use (such as composites) and that the three streams are related and to some extent overlapping (plastics-textiles; plastics-electronics), and those specific solutions might require an integrated approach.

Project results are expected to contribute to at least four of the following outcomes:

  • Increased deployment and market uptake of new technological solutions to waste management and recycling, and the measurement of recycled content
  • Enhanced diffusion and demonstrated benefits of advanced digital solutions in circular businesses
  • Emergence of new value chains using upcycled, recycled and/or biobased resources
  • Increased upcycling and recycling rates for the targeted material streams
  • Increased uptake of recycled material and upcycling to new higher-value products
  • Increased resource efficiency along and across value chains, causing a measurable reduction in GHG emissions
  • Increased diffusion of new circular business practices, in particular in the uptake of repair, reuse and remanufacturing
  • A significantly higher level of involvement of all actors (manufacturers, retailers, consumers, CSOs, public administration etc.) in circular practices
  • Increased level of information and awareness of citizens regarding circular and climate- neutral products and services
  • Strengthened competitiveness and job retention and creation potential of circular value chains under different economic and social conditions

The total indicative budget for the topic is EUR 22.00 million and projects can request contributions of up to EUR 6-8 million.
