Horizon Europe Programme

Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the European Union's framework programme for research and innovation for the period from 2021 to 2027. Horizon Europe is the successor to the Horizon 2020 programme, which ended at the end of 2020.

With a budget of €95.5 billion, and structured around 4 pillars, Horizon Europe's activities will be carried out through calls for proposals.

  • Research infrastructures

Pillar 2: Global challenges and European industrial competitiveness

  • 6 clusters
  • 5 missions
  • Partnerships

Pillar 3: Innovative Europe

  • European Innovation Council (EIC)
  • European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)
  • European Innovation Ecosystems (EIE)

Pillar 4: Widening participation and strengthening the European Research Area

2. The work programmes

The Aix-Marseille university community has been involved in the various European framework programmes since their creation. As a real force of proposal, it contributes to the quality, competitiveness and attractiveness of the European research and innovation landscape.

The work programmes covering the first two years of Horizon Europe are currently being finalised. You can consult the drafts and summaries of these programmes by logging on to Intramu.
