Key role of Horizon Europe EU Mission goals
Established under the Horizon Europe programme for the years 2021-2027, EU Missions are a new way to bring tangible solutions to some of society's greatest challenges. They have ambitious goals and will deliver concrete results by 2030. EU Missions align with Commission priorities like the European Green Deal.
The Mission on “Adaptation to Climate Change” focuses on supporting EU regions, cities and local authorities in building resilience against the impacts of climate change.
The Mission on “Restore our Ocean and Waters”, with a 2030 target, aims to protect and restore the health of our ocean and waters through research and innovation, citizen engagement and blue investments. This Mission takes the holistic approach to address both ocean and waters challenges, contributing to achieving climate neutrality and restoring nature.
The Mission on “A Soil Deal for Europe” main’s goal is to establish 100 living labs and lighthouses that will lead the transition towards healthy soils by 2030.
The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) manages and implements three of the five missions under the Horizon Europe framework programme: Adaptation to Climate Change, Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030, and 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart cities by 2030.
