Horizon 2020 Research Funding Opportunities - €5 million in Horizon Prizes to help create clean engines - Applications Open until September 12, 2017

The European Commission has launched two Horizon 2020 prizes to identify breakthrough ideas that could drastically reduce air pollution caused by transport.

A €3.5 million Horizon Prize for the Cleanest Engine of the Future and a €1.5 million Horizon Prize for the Engine Retrofit for Clean Air, funded by the EU's research programme Horizon 2020, will be awarded to the individuals or teams with the most effective solutions to the defined challenges.

Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, said: "Prizes are a great way of rewarding and stimulating innovation, and clean engine technology is something we must support if we want to achieve our ambitious climate, energy and air quality goals. So today we're launching two Horizon prizes worth a combined €5 million to generate momentum and investment in cleaner engine technologies."
