Have your say on future objectives for EU-funded research and innovation15.07.2019
Horizon Europe (2021-2027) is the successor to the current research and innovation framework programme (Horizon 2020) and represents the largest collaborative multinational research and innovation investment in Europe (proposed budget of €100 billion), open to participants worldwide.
In April 2019, the European Parliament and the Council reached a political agreement on the Horizon Europe legislative package, on the basis of which the European Commission has started to prepare the programme’s implementation, through a strategic planning process. This process focused, in particular, on Horizon Europe’s second pillar ('Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness'), will identify major policy drivers, strategic policy priorities and targeted impacts to be achieved, as well as missions and European Partnerships, leading to the development of the work programme and calls for the first 4 years of Horizon Europe (2021-2024).
As part of a co-design process, the Commission launched an online consultation (open until 8 September 2019) and anyone with an interest in future EU research and innovation is invited to participate. The results of this online consultation will be further discussed during the 'Research and Innovation Days' (Brussels, 24-26 September 2019), a policy event in which the European Commission bring together stakeholders to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape.
