Apply for funding from Horizon Europe

The first calls for proposals in the EU's new framework program for research and innovation have now opened. The main work program of Horizon Europe for the period 2021–2022 has a budget of a total of 14.7 billion euro. Information meetings about the funding opportunities are arranged this summer.

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.
