The European Union’s 9th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, runs from 2021 to 2027. It is the largest research and innovation funding programme in the world and the most ambitious one in the history of the European Union (EU) so far.

The overall aim of the new EU-Framework Programme for Research and Innovation is to expand the EU’s scientific and technological base by investing more in highly qualified workers and cutting-edge research. Horizon Europe will help in achieving the EU’s strategic priorities, such as implementing the Paris Climate Agreement and addressing other global challenges, while being guided by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Excellence in science is to be funded and advanced by the European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). Knowledge-based innovations and support implemented through the European Innovation Council (EIC) will drive forward the EU’s industrial competitiveness and innovation performance.
