Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe, the new EU research and innovation programme, is worth €95.5 billion in current prices. Its strategic plan sets the strategic orientations for the targeting of investments in the programme’s first four years. It ensures that EU research and innovation actions contribute to EU priorities, including a climate-neutral and green Europe, a Europe fit for the digital age, and a competitive economy that works for people.

The priorities set out in Horizon Europe’s Strategic Plan will be implemented through the Horizon Europe work programme. It sets out funding opportunities for research and innovation activities through thematic calls for proposals and topics.
