Have your say on shaping the way Horizon Europe is implemented

Take part in the European Commission survey for the Horizon Europe implementation strategy until 15 September 2019

How should the next EU research and innovation programme be implemented, to ensure that it achieves its ambitious objectives? Where can we simplify further? How should we deal with the novel features in the new programme? What should the legal documents, processes and tools for the programme look like? Share your views now with the European Commission.

Based on the experience of Horizon 2020, the current EU research and innovation programme, an implementation strategy for Horizon Europe (2021-2027) will set out how the programme will be managed in practice. It aims to further simplify, accommodate the novelties of Horizon Europe, while providing a high level of continuity. The co-design of the implementation strategy is linked to Horizon Europe’s strategic planning, to ensure from the start that implementation properly supports the programme’s policy objectives. 

The survey covers the entire project life cycle, from organisation of calls, proposal submission and evaluation up to efficient reporting and exploitation of results. The Commission invites anyone with an interest to participate in the consultation until 15 September 2019. The results of the survey will feed into discussions at the European Research and Innovation Days in Brussels from 24 to 26 September.


Horizon Europe’s implementation strategy is expected to be finalised at the end of 2019, timed in conjunction with the adoption of Horizon Europe’s Strategic Plan. A separate survey collecting input to inform the work to prepare Horizon Europe’s Strategic Plan will close on 8 September 2019.
