Missions, partnerships, clusters and innovation councils are some of the new instruments in Horizon Europe (HEU) – the upcoming Research & Innovation (R&I) framework program. But what to make of them? HEU will in some ways be a game changer in the way the European research agenda and its corresponding calls come to pass.
Some of the novelties: i) stakeholders shared their views in a co-design process; ii) novel instruments like the Missions direct the focus on long-term impact; iii) transition pathways and systems approach thinking, rather than single project outcomes, become more important; iv) fewer and newly structured partnerships will govern the collaboration of the EC, Member States and Industry; v) 35% of the total budget is dedicated for climate related research & innovation.
The workshop will:
- give an overview over latest developments and possible fields of cooperation
- discuss how the opportunities HEU offers can be utilized to promote ELLS as an active university alliance between the strongest life sciences universities in Europe
