Horizon Europe, the new ambitious European Framework Programme on Research and Innovation for the period of 2021 to 2027, was launched within the auspices of the Portuguese Presidency to the Council of the EU.
Building on the achievements and success of Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe will support top researchers, innovators and citizens to develop the knowledge and solutions needed for a green, digital and healthy future.
The new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation has a budget of around €95.5 billion, which includes €5.4 billion from NextGenerationEU to boost recovery and make the EU more resilient for the future. This makes Horizon Europe the EU’s most ambitious Research and Innovation (R&I) framework programme ever and the largest transnational programme of its kind worldwide. This innovative programme provides new instruments, such as the European Innovation Council, Research Missions and Partnerships to boost the EU R&I landscape.
