On November 23 (from 9:30 to 10:30), the EaP Plus project organized the webinar on SUSTAINABLE PROCESS INDUSTRY (SPIRE) 2018 calls for EU and EaP participants.


New Work Programme 2018-2020 on Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing under SPIRE calls particularly encourages international cooperation with Eastern Partnership countries (Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus).


The first three SPIRE calls have a deadline already on February 22, 2018, including:

  • CE-SPIRE-02-2018: Processing of material feedstock using non-conventional energy sources (IA)
  • CE-SPIRE-03-2018: Energy and resource flexibility in highly energy intensive industries (IA 50%)
  • CE-SPIRE-10-2018: Efficient recycling processes for plastic containing materials (IA)


There were several useful links mentioned, which we list below.
