HORIZON EUROPE European Commission proposal for the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2021-2027)

Written by

Horizon Europe’s main aim is to maximize the scientific, economic and societal impact of Union investment in research and innovation. To this end, it will seek to attract more investments from the industry and member states, strengthen the link between science and society and maximize the benefits derived from their interaction through activities ensuring commitment and involvement of EU citizens and their collectivities at all stages and levels (policy-making, implementation).

Horizon Europe will comprise three pillars, as follows:

  1. Open Science

  2. Global Challenges and Industrial Competitiveness

  3. Open Innovation

The three pillars will be interconnected and complemented by the introduction of a 4th horizontal Part “Strengthening the European Research Area”.

The proposed programme structure and the budget breakdown are presented in the following table:
