The European Commission has adopted the first strategic plan for Horizon Europe, the new EU research and innovation programme worth €95.5 billion in current prices.

- KEITH ZAHRA

The strategic plan is a novelty in Horizon Europe and sets the strategic orientatio­ns for the targeting of investment­s in the programme’s first four years. It ensures that EU research and innovation actions contribute to EU priorities, including a climate-neutral and green Europe, a Europe fit for the digital age, and an economy that works for people.

The strategic plan sets out four strategic orientatio­ns for research and innovation investment­s under Horizon Europe for the next four years. These include promoting an open strategic autonomy by leading the developmen­t of key digital, enabling and emerging technologi­es, sectors and value chains; restoring Europe’s ecosystems and biodiversi­ty, and managing sustainabl­y natural resources; making Europe the first digitally enabled circular, climate-neutral and sustainabl­e economy and creating a more resilient, inclusive and democratic European society.
