  • Horizon Europe: governance, missions and impact

    By Jean-Eric PAQUET-Director-General RTD- EC with an introduction by Mihails Kozlovs, ECA Member (2 March 2020)

    Horizon Europe foresees new ways of working and implementation: a truly collegiate, cross-sectoral co-creation approach across services set up to plan, programme and deliver support to research and innovation. 

    This would also involve close consultation and cooperation with other programmes so as to realise a maximum of coherence, impact and synergies across EU programmes. 

    In addition, European research and innovation missions aim to deliver solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing our world. Each mission is a mandate to solve a pressing challenge in society within a certain timeframe and budget. They are an integral part of the Horizon Europe framework programme beginning in 2021.
