The latest Research and Innovation Framework Programme: Horizon Europe

Thursday, 17 May, 2018
At the beginning of May, the European Commission announced a proposed budget of €100 billion for the next EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme, called Horizon Europe (2021-2027).

Once the Commission’s proposal has been accepted following negotiations by the Council and European Parliament, Horizon Europe will be launched on 1 January 2021. You can find the blog from Commissioner Moedas explaining the rationale for the new name here.

With simpler rules and less red tape, it will be designed around three pillars: Open Science, Global challenges and Open Innovation.

We would like to thank you for your valuable input throughout this process, which was fed into the proposal.

In order to ensure the best possible outcome for EU funds for research and innovation, we invite you to tweet messages of support using this shareable image and these three hashtags:  #InvestEUresearch #HorizonEU #EUBudget.

These tweets will be retweeted from the official @EU_H2020 Twitter account.

Together let’s do our best to ensure that we secure an EU budget for research and innovation that Europe deserves, for the coming years!
