LEAP-RE Joint Call for African-European Collaborative Research and Innovation projects on Renewable Energy
The Long-term Europe-Africa Partnership on Renewable Energy (LEAP-RE) programme co-funded by the European Union (EU) under Horizon 2020 aims to increase the use of renewable energy via a well-balanced set of research, demonstration, and technology transfer projects in both continents.
The 16 African and European funding agency members of LEAP-RE consortium, are engaged in the implementation of transnational joint calls for proposals co-funded by European and African national research funding agencies, with an additional EU top up.
The projects funded under the calls will focus on achieving goals of mutual benefit based on a balanced and cooperative approach. Particular attention will be given to strengthening the impact of R&I supported activities for the well-being of society in Europe and in Africa. The range of activities recommended for collaboration under LEAP-RE, will focus on 6 identified multi-annual roadmaps presented in the Call:
- Mapping renewable energy joint research and innovation
- End of life of renewable energy components
- Smart stand-alone systems
- Smart grids
- Productive uses of energy
- Domestic uses of energy
The LEAP-RE Joint Call 2021 will fund experimental development projects that are 12-36 months long.
