Ideas calls (http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/dc/index.cfm?fuseaction=UserSite.FP7CallsPage ) as well as Marie Curie Reintegration grant (http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/dc/index.cfm?fuseaction=UserSite.PeopleDetailsCallPage&call_id=168 ) are also of potential interest.

ENRTP

Europe Aid published on 31/07/2009 a new call for proposal within the ENRTP (Thematic Programme for Environment and sustainable management of natural resources, including energy) programme (deadline for submission of Concept Notes: 01/10/2009)

Extract from the Guidelines for Grant Applicants :

The ENRTP will help to achieve the EC's overall sustainable development objective, as laid down in the EU Sustainable Development Strategy, and as promoted by the European Consensus on Development, the 6th Environmental Action Programme, the European Neighbourhood Policy and the European Union's energy policy strategy, notably the EU external energy policy paper endorsed by the European Council and in the work of the International Dimension of the European Research Area (ERA) in support of the Lisbon Strategy.

The new priority 5 under the ENRTP on Sustainable Energy will contribute more concretely to addressing the request from the European Council of March 2007 on development of an external energy policy as it is outlined in the Action Plan for Energy Policy for Europe.

The Thematic Strategy Paper (TSP) on environment and sustainable management of natural resources, including energy (ENRTP) was adopted on 20 June 2007 by the Commission.

This four-year strategy addresses the following challenges, which have a profound effect on the lives of poor people: rapidly degrading key ecosystems, climate change, poor global environmental governance and inadequate access to and security of energy supply. The strategy is based on the following five priorities:

  1. assisting developing countries to make better progress on integrating environmental sustainability (the neglected 7th MDG) in decision making and thus underpin achievement of all the Millennium Development Goals by building capacity, supporting the involvement of civil society and developing innovative approaches;
  2. promoting implementation of Community initiatives and agreed commitments (including those under Multilateral Environmental Agreements) on environment and sustainable management of natural resources, including resource efficiency, energy at international and regional level and across national boundaries;
  3. improving environmental integration and promoting coherence in EU policies affecting third countries through methodological work and enhancing expertise;
  4. promoting EU environmental policies abroad by strengthening international environmental governance, negotiation and monitoring, assisting the operation of MEAs and other processes, supporting coherent international policy development across the three pillars of sustainable development and
  5. Promoting EU energy policies abroad, in particular sustainable energy options in partner countries and regions by support for policy development and through innovative funding mechanisms.

In the context of this call, only three ENRTP Priorities will be open. Applications should be relevant to at least one of these three Priority areas of the Thematic Strategy ENRTP referred to below:

ENRTP Priority 1. Working upstream in assisting developing countries to achieve the MDG7 on environmental sustainability:

  • Lot 1: Promoting environmental sustainability

ENRTP Priority 2. Promoting implementation of EU initiatives and internationally agreed commitments:

  • Lot 2 : Climate Change in non-ENPI countries
  • Lot 3: Forests
  • Lot 4: Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT)
  • Lot 5: Land Biodiversity in non-ENPI countries - Ecosystems services
  • Lot 6: Land Biodiversity in non-ENPI countries - Invasive species
  • Lot 7: Desertification
  • Lot 8: Fisheries
  • Lot 9: Sustainable production / consumption and waste
  • Lot 10: Biodiversity and Climate Change in ENPI countries

ENRTP Priority 5. Support for sustainable energy options in partner countries and regions:

  • Lot 11: Sustainable energy for Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Lot 12: Sustainable energy for South America
  • Lot 13: Sustainable energy for the Mediterranean
  • Lot 14: Sustainable energy for Eastern European Neighbourhood countries
