Horizon 2020 was the main research and innovation programme of the European Union between 2014 and 2020, with nearly 80 B€ of funding available over this 7-year period – in addition to the private investment that this funding framework attracted. It aims at more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the laboratory to the market.

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
  • Cancer
  • Climate-neutral and smart cities
  • Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters
  • Soil health and food
