Press releases

On 7 June, 2018, the European Commission adopted its proposal for the next European Union research and innovation programme (2021-2027), called Horizon Europe, which will build on the success of Horizon 2020. With a proposed total budget of €100 billion, it will be the largest research and innovation programme to date. Compared with Horizon 2020, it includes several new features including the establishment of a European Innovation Council (EIC) aimed at helping the EU become a frontrunner in market-creating innovation. New missions will also focus EU-wide research and innovation efforts to tackle global societal challenges and strengthen industrial competitiveness.  The principle of 'open science' will become the modus operandi of Horizon Europe, requiring open access to publications and data.  Horizon Europe will intensify its openness to the world by extending association possibilities to a wider range of third countries.
