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.
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.
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.

Swedish strategy in progress
The Government is planning to adopt a strategy for Swedish participation in the framework programme. The strategy is 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.
