Research Fund for Coal and Steel: Info day Annual Calls 2024

The Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) is the EU funding programme supporting research and demonstration projects in the coal and steel sectors.

For coal it provides support to the just transition of coal sector and regions, in line with the Just Transition Mechanism, and contributes to improving health and safety and to minimising the environmental impact of coal regions in transition.

For steel it supports breakthrough technologies for low-carbon steelmaking, in line with the objectives of the Horizon Europe Clean Steel partnership, and promotes the conservation of resources, the protection of the environment and circular economy, as well as the management of work force and working conditions.

In 2024, the RFCS annual calls make available EUR 40 million to finance the transition to digital, green, and circular coal and steel sectors. Around 70% of the funding will be used to finance steel projects, while the other 30% will support coal projects.

The info day gives you the opportunity to get more information on the topics of the calls for proposals and to learn the best practices for a successful submission. It is also an occasion to discuss potential project ideas, synergies, and network.

The event is organised by the European Research Executive Agency (REA) with the participation of the Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation’s Low Emission Future Industries team.
