Horizon Europe funds a wide range of R&D and innovation activities open to companies, research centres and citizen associations. Join us to discover new funding opportunities to be released in 2022, learn from the experience of previous participants and explore Horizon Europe themes such as circular economy, health and digital transformation.

Horizon Europe is the EU’s framework programme for research and innovation. Horizon Europe Day 2022 will provide an introduction to the objectives, functioning and funding mechanisms of the programme, as well as deep-dives into topics that are particularly relevant for Luxembourg organisations. In addition to information about forthcoming funding opportunities, the event will explore the major policies underpinning the programme and how they tie in with Luxembourg priorities, the five EU missions addressing major societal challenges, and synergies with other European funding instruments.

Horizon Europe calls for proposals are highly competitive and only the best applications are selected for funding. Luxembourg players will share their experience and lessons learnt about what it takes to succeed.

Horizon Europe Day 2022 is organised by the Luxembourg National Contact Point, Luxinnovation. Whether you are an experienced project participant or a newcomer interested in finding out more, this event is for you.
