The Commission is to invest €14.7 billion from Horizon Europe for a healthier, greener and more digital Europe
16 June 2021, the Commission has adopted the main work programme of Horizon Europe for the period 2021-2022, which outlines the objectives and specific topic areas that will receive a total of €14.7 billion in funding.
These investments 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.
With a key focus on climate neutrality and digital leadership
More than four in ten euros – around €5.8 billion in total – will be invested in research and innovation to support the European Green Deal and the Union’s commitment to make the EU the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050.
Making this decade Europe’s Digital Decade and laying the groundwork for new digital enterprises even further into the future are also core objectives of the programme, which will ensure a substantial increase of investment in this area.
The development of core digital technologies will be supported with around €4 billion over 2021-2022.
