Setting priorities for the future of EU

Engaging stakeholders to co-create and build the strategic priorities for the first 4 years of Horizon Europe’s implementation will be at the heart of the 2019 European Research and Innovation Days.

Horizon Europe, beginning in 2021, is the successor to the current research and innovation framework programme, Horizon 2020.

Mobilising and engaging different stakeholders will result in work programmes for Horizon Europe. It will better reflect the views and needs of citizens.

The 2019 European Research and innovation Days will provide opportunities for stakeholders to come together, deepen the dialogue and work across sectors and disciplines to help plan Horizon Europe’s implementation.

The EU supports science and technological research

Research and innovation are at the core of Europe’s economy and are vital for a sustainable and successful society.

Europe is renowned for its excellent scientific and technological research. It is one of the EU’s top priorities, resulting in countless improvements to our quality of life.

The EU funds research and innovation in Europe through multiannual framework programmes.

Funding programmes
The EU’s main funding instruments are the successive multiannual framework programmes.

The current framework programme Horizon 2020 will be succeeded by Horizon Europe (2021-2027).

The success of these programmes has grown over the years. Every euro invested by Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe can potentially generate a return of up to €11 of GDP.
