Presupuestos UE: La Comisión Europea propone el más ambicioso Programa Marco de Investigación e Innovación hasta el momento

For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission is proposing €100 billion for research and innovation.

A new programme – Horizon Europe – will build on the achievements and success of the previous research and innovation programme (Horizon 2020) and keep the EU at the forefront of global research and innovation.

While continuing to drive scientific excellence through the European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Sk?odowska-Curie fellowships and exchanges, Horizon Europe will introduce the following main new features: a European Innovation Council (EIC), new missions with ambitious goals that affect our daily lives, the principle of 'open science' will become the modus operandi of Horizon Europe and new European Partnerships and increased collaboration with other EU programmes.

A swift agreement on the next long-term budget in 2019 would provide for a seamless transition between the current long-term budget (2014-2020) and the new one and would ensure predictability and continuity of funding.

The Horizon Europe proposal builds on the success of the current programme, Horizon 2020. About two-thirds of Europe's economic growth over the last decades has been driven by innovation. Horizon Europe’ investments in R&I are expected to directly generate an estimated gain of up to 100 000 jobs in R&I activities in the ‘investment phase' (2021-2027).
