Moreover, it will also be in charge of the SME instrument, several parts of the energy and climate societal challenges and industrial leadership challenge within Horizon 2020, the Programme for Environment and Climate ation (LIFE) and, later in 2014, also of parts of the European Maritime Fisheries Fund and the follow-on initiatives to Intelligent Energy – Europe and Eco-innovation.
