To Horizon Europe

In June 2018, the European Commission published its proposal for the "Horizon Europe" framework programme, with a budget of nearly €100 billion. The examination of this programme, which is crucial for the future of the European research and innovation landscape, will continue until the European elections in June 2019 and beyond.

The university community of Aix-Marseille, which has been involved since its creation in the various European framework programmes, is a driving force for proposals contributing to the quality, competitiveness and attractiveness of the European research and innovation landscape.

In November 2018, AMU formulated a "Position Paper" which you will find here: inFrenchand inEnglishto take part in the debates.
