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

Innovative solutions to over-packaging and single-use plastics, and related microplastic pollution

Deadline: 6 oktober 2021

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.
