The European Commission's investments in Horizon Europe will help accelerate the green and digital transitions and will contribute to sustainable recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and to EU resilience against future crises. They will also be used to build efficient European innovation ecosystems and create world-class research infrastructures. Researchers and other actors in Europe can apply for support through calls, fellowships, training and various exchanges.
