Horizon Europe - Digital, Industry and Space- Cluster 4

Research and Transfer Service

Submission deadline: 23 September 2021

Submission deadline: 23 September, 2021

Digital: Progress in digital technologies shape all sectors of the economy and society. Research and Innovation actions in this Cluster focus on strengthening the global competitiveness of the European digital sector while taking into account key environmental and societal challenges like sustainability or inclusiveness. 

Industry: The European Commission’s strategic objective for European industry is to transform it into a clean, climate-neutral, circular and competitive part of the economy. Research and innovation actions in this Cluster focus on the processing industry, the construction sector, manufacturing and materials. 

Space: Maximising the benefits for society and the economy, fostering competitiveness and innovation, reinforcing Europe's autonomy in accessing and using space: all this comprises the European Commission's "Space Strategy for Europe". Opportunities in this Cluster range from Earth observation and navigation systems, to enabling technologies such as launchers, propulsion systems, electronics and robotics.

Switzerland is currently considered a non-associated third country to Horizon Europe. Swiss partners can still participate in collaborative projects, with federal funding. Please contact Martina Pestoni for more details.
