Apply for funding

Our way of advancing the European circular bioeconomy is by funding excellent projects. Discover how to apply for CBE JU funding under Horizon Europe.

Prepare your proposal

CBE JU launches annual calls for project proposals under Horizon Europe research and innovation programme. Our open innovation approach welcomes all actors - from farmers to research centres and universities, from small businesses to large industries - to develop a competitive bioeconomy in Europe.

Collaborate

The networking platform is where you identify the partners of your potential project proposal. We organise it around the call for proposals to help you build your network of people interested in the same topics.
