Type of action
Horizon Europe is the new EU framework programme for research and innovation which succeeds Horizon 2020. Within the clusters of pillar II, it will incorporate research and innovation missions to increase the effectiveness of funding by pursuing clearly defined targets with a concrete impact on citizen’s daily lives.
EU missions are an integral part of the Horizon Europe framework programme. Each mission will operate as a portfolio of actions and will contribute to the goals of the European Green Deal, Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.
Info-Days for the EU Missions will be held virtually between 18 and 19 January 2022. The Info-Days will present a wide range of new topics for all five missions (Adaptation to Climate Change, Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030, A Soil Deal for Europe, Cancer and 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart cities by 2030) which are part of the amended Missions’ Work Programme 2021 under Horizon Europe.
The event will provide prospective applicants with specific information on the new Missions’ Work Programme calls, funding opportunities and timelines. The Commission invites researchers and innovators as well as citizens and all interested stakeholders to take part in the five missions.
