CETPartnership – The Clean Energy Transition Partnership

Home Internationalisation CETPartnership – The Clean Energy Transition Partnership

The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) is a new transnational initiative (part of the European Partnerships under Horizon Europe) on joint Research, Technological Development, and Innovation (RTDI) programming to boost and accelerate the energy transition, building upon regional and national RTDI funding programmes.

The transition envisioned by the CETPartnership will be a joint effort from industry, public organisations, research, and citizen organisations to make Europe the front-runner in clean energy innovation and implementation.

The CETPartnership will foster transnational innovation ecosystems from the very local and regional level, up to the transnational European level, thus overcoming a fragmented European landscape. Moreover, it intends to reach out to collaboration with funding partners beyond Europe, in order to broaden the knowledge and experience bases and introduce European solutions and stakeholders to the global value chains.

The overarching aim is to empower the energy transition and contribute to the EU’s goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.

The common vision of the CETPartnership is already manifested in its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) that has been co-created in a broad engagement process during 2020.The SRIA was endorsed together with the European Commission (DG RTD and ENER) in November 2020. This articulates the common goal of:

  • Building innovation ecosystems that support capacity building at all levels
  • Developing and demonstrating technology and solutions for the transition of energy systems
  • Building a transnational transformative Joint Programming Platform
