The European Union is one of the most advanced regions in terms of research and development, and its Horizon Europe programme is an example of this. Horizon Europe is a research and innovation programme that will run from 2021 to 2027.

This programme aims to support European researchers and companies on their way to excellence. With a total budget of 97 billion euros, Horizon Europe is one of the largest research and innovation funding programmes in the world.

What is Horizon Europe?

The Horizon Europe programme aims to foster collaboration between European researchers, companies and organisations. It also seeks to foster innovation in key areas for European society and the world at large, such as fight against climate change, health, digital technology, industry and culture. This is intended to have a positive impact on society and the European economy, while advancing research and development in these areas.

One of the pillars of Horizon Europe is partnership. Collaboration between researchers and companies, as well as between different European countries, is encouraged. This allows researchers and companies to harness the potential of cooperation and collaboration to carry out more ambitious and far-reaching projects. On the other hand, it seeks to promote collaboration between industry and academia in order to ensure that research results are transferred to society and the economy.

Another key aspect of Horizon Europe is the focus on innovation. The programme seeks to support innovation in all its forms, from basic research to technology transfer and the commercialisation of products and services. Particular attention is given to innovation in key areas such as digital technology, energy and health, where it is expected to have a significant impact on society and the European economy.

Horizon Europe also focuses on supporting younger and less experienced researchers and companies. It seeks to ensure that all have access to the funding and resources needed to carry out their research and innovation. This includes a special focus on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that often have difficulty accessing the resources needed to carry out research and develop innovations. The programme also includes a focus on supporting young and emerging researchers, with the aim of fostering the next generation of research and development leaders in Europe.

A Europe ready for the digital era

Due to the digital transformation that is taking place, the EU aims to make this transformation happen for both individuals and companies. This will work to consolidate the EU’s digital sovereignty and set the rules, while focusing on data, technology and infrastructure.

The aim is that by 2023 more than 80% of the EU population will have basic digital skills where work will be done to provide a safe and responsible online environment. It will also ensure access to fair and open digital markets that will strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and resilience.

A European Green Deal

It consists of the effort to become the first climate-neutral continent where it is about transforming the EU into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy.

Achieving the green deal will ensure that greenhouse gases are no longer produced and that people and places are not left behind.

The main benefits of the European Green Pact:

  • It will increase the well-being and improve the health of current citizens and future generations.
  • You will get fresh air, clean water, healthy soil and biodiversity.
  • Buildings will be renovated to make them energy efficient.
  • Public transport will be used.
  • It will work towards a healthy food system for both people and the planet.
  • Durable products that can be repaired and reused.
  • Jobs with future perspectives.

In conclusion, Horizon Europe is an ambitious and necessary programme for the future of research and innovation in Europe. With its focus on collaboration, innovation, support for young researchers and companies, and open science and citizen participation, Horizon Europe has the potential to make a significant contribution to European society and the European economy in the coming years.
