Horizon Europe Program by the European Research Council

European Commission

The Opportunity

An exceptional opportunity for entrepreneurs with the will to lead Europe’s future. Horizon Europe is the most ambitious proposal by the EU for excellence in research and innovation. An investment program for the next 7 years endowed with a €100 billion budget with the aim of ensuring that Europe leads the forefront of global R&D and innovation activities.

What do we offer?

Horizon Europe is a scientific research initiative planned for the next 7 years, from 2021 to 202x approved on December 11, 2020 by the EU institutions. It is the “natural” extension of the well-known “Horizon 2020” Program whose purpose is to increase the levels of scientific investments in the EU by 50%.

In 2018 the European Commission proposed an ambitious € 100 billion research and innovation program, Horizon Europe, to succeed Horizon 2020. You can read the full proposal here.

It welcomes projects that prioritize 5 activity areas:

  • Cancer.
  • Adaptation to climate change including Social Transformation.
  • Water and Oceans.
  • Smart and climate-neutral cities.
  • Soil and Food Health.
