Horizon Europe 2021 - 2027

 

MAKING IT WORK - Removing as many obstacle as possible from the path of innovators will be a major advance in engaging game changers who might be put off at a stage in their development where they need encouragement. Generally, innovators want to succeed in their chosen endeavours, whereas bean counters just want to count beans. Policy makers should retrain bean counters to simplify administration for innovators to free up thinking capacity for innovating.

 

Successful entrepreneurs have several traits in common: courage, an appetite for risk, the capacity to imagine and envision novel futures, and the ability to inspire their teams to turn visions into reality. In a modern world where inventing requires many different skills in combination, project leaders must be multi talented and adaptable to solve problems. 

 

 

THE COMMISSION'S PROPOSAL FOR HORIZON EUROPE

 

The Commission has published its proposal for Horizon Europe, an ambitious €100 billion research and innovation programme that will succeed Horizon 2020.

 

The proposal was made as part of the EU's proposal for the next EU long-term budget, the multiannual financial framework (MFF).

 

Various building blocks were taken into account including the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020, the Lab-Fab-App report (informally the Lamy report), foresight studies and various other reports. 

 

Legal texts, factsheets and video

The EU institutions reached a provisional agreementon Horizon Europe on 20 March 2019. The European Parliament endorsed the provisional agreement on 17 April 2019.

 

 

 

APOLLO 11 - Inspired by the Apollo 11 mission to put a man on the moon, the European R&I missions aim to deliver solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing our world, such as cancer, climate change, healthy oceans, climate-neutral cities and healthy soil and food.

At the occasion of the Informal Council for Research Ministers in Helsinki, Finland, Commissioner Carloc Moedas announced the appointment of five prominent experts to chair the mission boards, which will propose targets and timelines to design the specific missions.

 

 

PURSUING A MISSION ORIENTED POLICY APPROACH

 

Horizon Europe will incorporate policy missions to ensure the effectiveness of research and innovation funding by pursuing clearly defined targets. 

 

The Commission has engaged policy experts to develop studies, case studies and reports on how a mission-oriented policy approach will work.
