H2020-EIC Horizon Prize for 'Fuel from the Sun Artificial Photosynthesis'

The challenge is to build a fully functional, bench-scale prototype of an artificial photosynthesis-based system which is able to produce a useable synthetic fuel.
The device to be built needs to integrate the whole process from light capture to fuel production and be capable of powering a small engine. For the purpose of this prize, artificial photosynthesis (AP) is understood to be a process that aims at mimicking the physical chemistry of natural photosynthesis by absorbing solar energy in the form of photons. The solution is required to use this energy to generate fuel molecules through a synthetic system to be delivered as a single integrated device that utilises either biomimetic, nanotechnology, synthetic biology or a combination of these systems.
Proposals shall develop a number of innovative devices and systems demonstrating the use of sunlight to produce a fuel ready to be used.
