Horizon Europe – the next research and innovation framework programme

The Commission is working on its proposal for Horizon Europe, the framework programme that will succeed Horizon 2020.

This is done on the basis of various building blocks including the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020, the Lab-Fab-App report (informally the Lamy report), foresight studies and various other reports.
The proposal is being made as part of the EU’s proposal for the next EU long-term budget, the multiannual financial framework (MFF)

Horizon Europe


Horizon Europe, with a budget of €97.9 billion, is the biggest ever research and innovation funding programme.


A mission-oriented policy approach

Horizon Europe will incorporate research and innovation missions to ensure the effectiveness of research and innovation funding by pursuing clearly defined targets. The Commission has engaged policy experts to develop studies, case studies and reports on how a mission-oriented policy approach would work for Horizon Europe.
