Horizon Europe shall contribute to fulfilling the vision of a flourishing, fair and sustainable society. The programme shall contribute to green growth and competitiveness, and sets clear global goals for fighting climate change and working towards sustainable development. You can read about how the programme is designed on the European Commission’s website. External link.
The Swedish Government Offices has divided up responsibility for Sweden’s participation in the framework programme between several public agencies. Vinnova has been appointed as Sweden’s contact agency, and has detailed information about Horizon Europe on its website. External link.
National Contact Points support researchers in Sweden
The Swedish Research Council has National Contact Points (NCP) for various parts of the framework programme. They are responsible for informing about calls and events, and for answering questions relating to their respective areas of responsibility within Horizon Europe.
We also have experts who provide support to the Government Offices’ work on the programme committees that exist for the various subsidiary programmes under parts of Horizon Europe. Both experts and National Contact Points have colleagues with corresponding tasks at other public agencies.
You are welcome to contact the National Contact Points at the Swedish Research Council if you have any questions about the framework programme.

The Swedish Research Council also works with the European partnerships within the framework programme. We are also involved in the work with the challenge-driven parts of the framework programme, known as missions, and in particular with the missions relating to cancer and climate change.
The Government has adopted a strategy for Swedish participation in the framework programme. Read the full strategy on the Government's website External link..
The national strategy is partly based on a proposal for a strategy developed by the Swedish Research Council in collaboration with Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency, Formas, Forte, and the Swedish National Space Agency. Read the full strategy proposal in the report Gathering Forces for Horizon Europe
Gender Equality Plan
All organisations that are granted funds within the framework programme need to have a Gender Equality Plan (GEP). The Swedish Research Council's gender equality plan describes both the Swedish Research Council's work with gender equality internally, as an employer, and externally, as a research funding body.
