The Commission is proposing a new programme for the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027.
The new programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, will build on the achievements and success of the previous research and innovation programme (Horizon 2020) and keep the EU at the forefront of global research and innovation.
The Commission wants to increase funding for the European Research Council to strengthen the EU’s global scientific leadership, and reengage citizens by setting ambitious new missions for EU research.
While continuing to drive scientific excellence through the European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships and exchanges, Horizon Europe will introduce the following main new features: a European Innovation Council (EIC), new EU-wide research and innovation missions, maximising the innovation potential across the EU, more openness, a new generation of European Partnerships and increased collaboration with other EU programmes.
