11 Jun EC gives details of €100 billion research proposal
The European Commission has announced the details of its €100 billion (US$118 billion) proposal for the next long-term budget for its research and innovation programme for 2021-27, which it calls the “most ambitious research and innovation programme ever”.
Horizon Europe, as the new programme is known, “will build on the achievements and success of the previous research and innovation programme (Horizon 2020) and keep the European Union at the forefront of global research and innovation,” the commission declared last Thursday.
European Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for jobs, growth, investment and competitiveness, said: “EU funding has allowed teams across countries and scientific disciplines to work together and make unthinkable discoveries, making Europe a world-class leader in research and innovation. With Horizon Europe, we want to build on this success and continue to make a real difference in the lives of citizens and society as a whole.”continue reading
