Commission adopts Horizon Europe strategic plan for EU's research and innovation funding


On 20 March 2024, during the flagship Research and Innovation Days, the Commission adopted the second strategic plan for Horizon Europe. The plan sets out three key strategic orientations for research and innovation funding for the final years of the programme (2025-2027): 

  • Green transition; 
  • Digital transition; 
  • A more resilient, competitive, inclusive and democratic Europe. 

The funding is expected to address key global challenges such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, the digital transition and an ageing population. 

The plan will be implemented through the work programmes which set out funding opportunities for research and innovation activities through thematic calls for proposals. In April 2024, the Commission will launch a feedback opportunity, open to all stakeholders, for the main Work Programme 2025.
