All updates on Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for the period 2021-2027, as well as the largest transnational research and innovation programme in the world with an overall budget of EUR 95.50 billion.

Horizon Europe consists of three pillars and one horizontal activity:


The Excellent Science Pillar aims to increase the EU’s global scientific competitiveness. It supports frontier research projects driven by top researchers through the European Research Council, funds fellowships for experienced researchers, doctoral training networks and exchanges through Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, and invests in world-class research infrastructures.

It is already open for submission.


The Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness Pillar supports research relating to societal challenges and reinforces technological and industrial capacities through clusters. It sets ambitious goals for EU missions. It also includes the Joint Research Centre which supports EU and national policymakers with independent scientific evidence and technical support.

The clusters are:

    1. Health
    2. Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society
    3. Civil Security for Society
    4. Digital, Industry and Space
    5. Climate, Energy and Mobility
    6. Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

The opening is scheduled for June, but with Wheesbee you can consult all the drafts of the work programmes, with its 781 topics.


The Innovative Europe Pillar aims to make Europe a frontrunner in market-creating innovation via the European Innovation Council. It also helps to develop the overall EU innovation landscape through the European Institute of Innovation and Technology which fosters integration of the knowledge triangle of education, research and innovation.

It is already open for submission.


Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area (ERA) by increasing support to the EU Member States in their efforts to make the most of their national research and innovation potential, fostering closer collaborations and spreading excellence.
