Horizon Europe aims at strengthening the scientific and technological base of EU economies in order to help tackle major global challenges and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The programme will also strengthen the European Research Area (ERA).
At the same time, the programme aims to boost the EU’s innovation capacity and competitiveness, including that of its industries and jobs.
Horizon Europe will deliver on citizens’ priorities and sustain Europe’s socioeconomic model and values. It will also deliver on the EU strategic priorities and support the development and implementation of Union policies.
To achieve this aim and build on the success of its predecessor, Horizon 2020 (2014 – 2020), Horizon Europe continues to support the whole R&I cycle in an integrated manner.
