If your company or knowledge institute collaborates internationally in the areas of research, technological development and innovation, you can participate in the Horizon Europe programme. The Horizon Europe programme is the successor to Horizon 2020.
When do you qualify?
Horizon Europe consists of 3 categories (pillars):
- Excellent Science: aimed at researchers, to reinforce and extend the excellence of the European Union’s science base. You can request subsidy support for pioneering research or for improving the research infrastructure. Grants are also available for researchers who want to work abroad (temporarily) or want to improve their skills through training.
- Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness: to speed up the development of the technologies and innovations that will underpin EU policies and the Sustainable Development Goals. This pillar focusses on among others: Health, Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society, Civil Security for Society, Climate, Energy and Mobility.
- Innovative Europe: stimulates innovation to improve the EU’s competitiveness.
Missions are a part of Horizon Europe. Missions consist of research activities and aim to solve major societal challenges. There are 5 mission areas:
- Adaptation to climate change including societal transformation
- Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters
- Climate-neutral and smart cities
- Soil health and food
