The EU's Horizon Europe could change the climate warming landscape, where they are trying to break down the barriers geared to knock out SMEs and startups by virtue of the financial capability and track record tests, where clearly, a startup would not have a trading track record - making the European Commission risk adverse - in real terms - so knocking out many ideas before they get a chance to germinate.

The programme starts in 2021, taking over from Horizon 2020 and the Green Deal

It is claimed that their powerful instruments and innovative governance will drive the necessary systemic changes to reach climate neutrality and ensure an inclusive ecological and economic transition.

It is claimed that over 35% of Horizon Europe spending will contribute to climate objectives.

GREEN PARTNERSHIPS

The European Commission hope that there will be a new wave of research and innovation partnerships under Horizon Europe.

Four out of the five agreed mission areas in Horizon Europe directly support the European Green Deal:

- Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters
- Climate-neutral and smart cities
- Soil health and food
- Adaptation to climate change and societal transformation
- Green research and innovation rules

To deliver on the European Green Deal, a careful assessment, analysis and design of existing and future legislation is necessary. At the same time, it is important to leave room for new and out-of-the-box ideas to reach a sustainable future more quickly and more effectively.

 

 

 

INHIBITING RULES : The Elizabeth Swann (above) is a zero emissions vessel, using only solar and wind power for propulsion. Under current EU point scoring, she'd have little chance of securing funding. This is why the Cleaner Ocean Foundation is inviting other supportive collaboration, including corporate branding opportunity.
