Call for proposals 2017 - H2020 - Industrial sustanibility H2020-NMBP-ST-IND-2018-2020 Closed!


The purpose of this call is to further strengthen the global leadership of Europe’s industry in environmental sustainability, through a combination of mature and disruptive technologies. Success will be seen in making measurable contributions to identified sustainable development goals.

This call contributes to the focus area 'Connecting economic and environmental gains – the Circular Economy' through:

  • new technologies for the process industries such as industrial symbiosis and adaptation to new feedstock and sources of energy; and
  • radical advances in catalysis.
