The Political Partial Agreement on Horizon Europe: Science Europe’s Reaction
Science Europe welcomes the Political Partial Agreement on Horizon Europe, the next Framework Programme for research and innovation (R&I), previously approved by the Council and voted on today in plenary by the European Parliament. Science Europe is very pleased to see that excellence remains the core principle of the programme. It also welcomes the increase of the budget earmarked to support low R&I-performing countries. However Horizon Europe’s ambitions can only be met with the appropriate funding. Science Europe therefore advises the European Council and the Finance Ministers to grant Horizon Europe a budget of at least €120bn.
