Cluster 4 Digital, Industry and Space
The overarching vision behind the proposed research and innovation funding available under Cluster 4 (Digital, Industry and Space) is that of Europe shaping competitive and trusted technologies for a European industry with global leadership in key areas, enabling production and consumption to respect the boundaries of our planet, and maximising the benefits for all parts of society in the variety of social, economic and territorial contexts in Europe. This will build a competitive, digital, low-carbon and circular industry, ensure sustainable supply of raw materials, develop advanced materials, and provide the basis for advances and innovation in global challenges to society.
To achieve this overarching vision, through research and innovation, Cluster 4 comprises three main areas: Digital, Industry and Space, that can be accessed below.
AVECTAS received €2m from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme via its SME Instrument.
This support along with that of investors was key to enabling AVECTAS to progress the commercialisation of its SOLUPORE® platform including completing successful preclinical studies.
Limerick City and County Council is taking part in a five-year, €24m, pan-European project to create positive energy blocks within cities.
The project is funded by Horizon 2020 under its Smart Cities and Communities call. Now midway through the project, +CityxChange is set to roll out its blueprint for carbon reduction across seven European cities.
