The leading universities of science and technology united within CESAER today publish three papers as an input to the European Commission’s public consultation on the past, present and future of the European research and innovation framework programmes 2014-2027.
The addendum note presents our perspective on key issues informing the operation of Horizon Europe, building on experiences from Horizon 2020 and looking ahead to the future programme. Key issues covered include: the integration of social sciences and humanities, lump-sum funding and clarity of the rules for participation, as well as first experiences with the new portfolio of funding instruments under Horizon Europe (EU Missions, public-private partnerships, European Innovation Council funding schemes).
The joint statement on ‘Future-proof Horizon Europe through balanced research and innovation calls’ underlines our association’s wish to see a rebalanced proportion of calls with lower, medium and higher Technology Readiness Levels for collaborative call topics within the Horizon Europe clusters (see separate article also published today for further details).
