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.
