Towards the next EU Research and Innovation Programme
The world’s biggest challenges, like climate change, artificial intelligence, data governance and many others, are global challenges that cannot be solved at the national level alone. Europe and the European Union therefore provide a unique platform for open and excellent cross-border research funding, complementing national funding schemes.
The European Commission is now moving rapidly towards the finalisation of the next EU Framework Programme, which will define the future of the largest research funding system in the world. Through its Working Group Horizon Europe, ALLEA provides significant input into developing the EU’s proposed framework for research funding within the “Horizon Europe” programme. ALLEA is a recognised and respected interlocutor on all aspects of European Union research funding and continues to make visible contributions on behalf of the European academies.
The Working Group particularly seeks to ensure that any successor research programme to Horizon 2020 is developed with the interests of the “Wissenschafts”-community in mind and provides for full representations of the Social Sciences and Humanities.
