The European Commission has adopted the main work programme of Horizon Europe for the period 2021-2022. The programme outlines the objectives and topic areas that will receive a share of €14.7 billion in funding.
The investment is intended to accelerate the green and digital transitions as well as contributing to a sustainable recovery from the pandemic. The first Horizon Europe calls will support and complement initiatives and programmes including the European Green Deal, the European Research Area, Europe’s Digital Decade and NextGenerationEU.
The first calls from the programme will launch on 22 June 2021 and more details about the calls will be shared during the EU R&I Days.
Along with the approach approved by the Commission in the field of international cooperation in research and innovation, the programme includes targeted actions aiming at strengthening cooperation through multilateral initiatives, also including non-EU partners as for the Africa initiative.
