About CET-Partnership Calls
The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) aims at accelerating the clean energy transition to achieve the goal of climate neutrality by 2050. It is a multilateral and strategic partnership of national and regional Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) funding programmes in EU Member States and associated countries, co-funded by the European Commission through Horizon Europe (HE).
This Climate Energy Transition (CET) Partnership 2023 is the second annual co-funded call under this partnership. It is a two-stage call for consortia, structured in 12 thematic modules within the energy field and open to a wide range of Technology Readiness Levels (TRL 3-9).
WHO CAN APPLY?
Consortium of at least 3 independent entities (at least, one coordinator and two partners).
They must be deemed eligible for funding by relevant national/regional funding organisations from at least three different countries participating in the call (list of funding organisations & modules). Of these three entities, at least two must be from EU Member States or HE associated countries.
Any legal entity can apply (private or public) regardless of their nature (SME, large enterprise, university, research center, municipality, NGO, etc.).
The call demands compliance with certain transnational, national and module requirements (e.g., TRL levels, budget). Moreover, it is advisable to carefully check all these requirements as well as the eligibility approval from the corresponding funding organisation for each applicant entity before applying to this call.
WHAT TECHNOLOGIES ARE SUPPORTED
There are 12 thematic modules defined in this CETPartnership call:
- Direct current (DC) technologies for power networks

- Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUs)
- Hydrogen and renewable fuels
- Heating and cooling technologies
- Geothermal energy technologies
- Integrated regional energy systems
- Integrated industrial energy systems
- Clean energy integration in the built environment.
Depending on each module’s specific requirements, the call targets both research-focused and development-focused projects or one of these. Our recommendation is to check in advance each module’s specific requirements for the maturity of the technologies.
