successful proposal Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the EU’s next funding program for research and innovation. It will run from 2021 to 2027 with a proposed budget of approximately €100 billion.

The strategic plan for the new funding program sets out four main strategic orientations for research and innovation investments for the next four years:

  • Promoting an open strategic autonomy by leading the development of key digital, enabling, and emerging technologies, sectors, and value chains;
  • Restoring Europe’s ecosystems and biodiversity, and managing sustainably natural resources;
  • Making Europe the first digitally-enabled circular, climate-neutral, and sustainable economy;
  • Creating a more resilient, inclusive, and democratic European society.

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

The first calls for proposals will be launched in the spring of 2021 and will be presented at the European Research and Innovation Days on 23-24 June.

Webinar Session

On the 24th March 2021 at 10:00 am the European Commission will organize an open informative session on “How to prepare a successful proposal in Horizon Europe”. The purpose of this event is to inform all potential applicants to Horizon Europe calls on the modalities for preparing their proposals.

The agenda will include two main points:
