2021–2027 Horizon Europe
Publications series

A series of articles by EUROPEUM's Associate Research Fellow Katarína Svitková, focusing on “Innovative Europe” – the third dimension (or the 3rd pillar) of Horizon Europe. Horizon Europe is the EU's key funding programme for research and innovation.

About the series:

This EUROPEUM series addresses the transformative momentum of Europe which is met by the beginning of the 2021-2027 Horizon funding cycle. The latter gives Europe a unique opportunity to address the societal and environmental challenges ahead.

Current Horizon Europe not only counts with the largest structural green and digital innovation budget in its history but also provides targeted development of disadvantaged regions and declining industries. With green transformation being one of the financial megatrends, Europe is thus joining the club of its leading global stakeholders. The research and innovation budget allows EU member countries to transform their economies on a scale that individual members would hardly bring forward.

Horizon 2027 is therefore set to become a significant milestone in the European project.

This series of articles introduces some of the key components and programs of Horizon's innovation pillar. For this purpose, it discusses the trends, objectives and specific program calls, focusing predominantly on areas of private-public collaboration, capacity building and higher education.
