The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETP) is a transnational initiative 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 CETP aims to contribute to the EU’s goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, by pooling national and regional RDTI funding for a broad variety of technologies and system solutions required to make the transition. In that sense, the CETP establishes seven Transition Initiatives (TRIs) in order to work together on
- organising target group oriented stakeholder management and communication in the field;
- developing thematic modules for the annual joint calls;
- implementing accompanying activities on knowledge management and maximising impact.
In September 2023, a new call is launched. This time, the main focus of SFOE will be on the following call modules:
- CM2023-04: Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)
- CM2023-06: Heating and cooling technologies
- CM2023-07: Geothermal energy technologies
Participating Swiss organizations
Switzerland being an Associated Country to CETP, the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and the Swiss Science National Foundation (SNSF) joined the CETP. Swiss based applicants can join research consortia on equal terms with applicants from EU Member States, and other Associated Partners.
