AND AFTER HORIZON 2020?
Horizon Europe is the research and innovation framework programme running from 2021-2027. The European Commission has proposed to provide this new programme with an envelope of €100 billion.
Horizon Europe will incorporate research and innovation missions to increase the effectiveness of funding by pursuing clearly defined targets. Five mission areas have been identified, each with a dedicated mission board and assembly. The board and assembly help specify, design and implement the specific missions which have launched under Horizon Europe in 2021:
- Adaptation to climate change including societal transformation
- Climate-neutral and smart cities
- Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters
- Soil health and food
