The CETP is launching its second transnational call for research, technological development and innovation proposals on topics linked to the energy transition. 
This partnership aims to promote the transition to clean energy and contribute to the EU's goal of making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.
The SNSF is involved in Call Modules 4, 8, 9 and 10A, which address the capture, utilisation and storage of carbon; integrated regional energy systems; integrated industrial energy systems; and clean energy integration in the built environment respectively.
Even though Switzerland is not currently associated to Horizon Europe, the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) have joined the CETP. Swiss-based applicants can join research consortia under the same conditions as those based in EU member states and other participating countries.
