Efficient and circular artificial photosynthesis


Development of novel artificial photosynthesis technologies, which allow for improved efficiency of light harvesting, conversion to electrochemical potential and energy fixation to carriers with strictly implementing circularity by design and efficient use of carrier and (photo)catalyst materials through novel photoelectrochemical or bio-based (bio-hybrid) or biological pathways for solar fuel production with increased efficiency in comparison to light and dark reactions of natural photosynthesis. Production of hydrogen as a final product is not envisaged.

Synergies are possible with topic HORIZON-CL4-2021-RESILIENCE-01-16 Creation of an innovation community for solar fuels and chemicals (CSA) and respective cooperation activities are encouraged.

Eligible costs will take the form of a lump sum.
