Selected – 2023

1st transnational call for proposals 2022 of the new European Clean Energy Transition Partnership

The CETPartnership Joint Call 2022 is the first annual co-funded call under the CETPartnership and is co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe Partnership scheme. For France, the ANR participates to the funding of this call with Ademe and the Région Pays de la Loire.

The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) 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 (national agencies, regions…). It aims to support the implementation of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan). 

Scope and topics of the call

The CETP First Call is structured into 11 thematic Call Modules, arising from 7 Transition Initiatives (TRI) related to the major challenges to favour the clean energy transition. Each TRI corresponds to one or two Call Modules.

The Call Modules describe specific topics and/or challenges that applicants shall address in their project proposal. Applicants must choose and apply to a specific Call Module when submitting their project proposal.

The ANR will fund some of these Call Modules as indicated in the table below. The French applicants requesting funding from ANR will be funded only in the Call Modules where ANR is positioned on.

The call text, also containing the list of countries and regions participating in this call and their positioning with regard to the call modules, is available on the CETP website at the following address (

Each proposal must include at least three independent legal entities from at least three different countries participating in the CETPartnership Joint Call 2022, out of which at least two must be EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries.

Partners of the selected proposals will be funded directly by their respective national or regional agencies. As a result, national/regional regulations apply in addition to call rules. The ANR will only fund French teams. In particular, French partners requesting funding from ANR should read the document "Appendix for Partners requesting funding from ANR", available on this page.
