Once the Commission’s proposal has been accepted following negotiations by the Council and European Parliament, Horizon Europe will be launched on 1 January 2021. You can find the blog from Commissioner Moedas explaining the rationale for the new name here.
With simpler rules and less red tape, it will be designed around three pillars: Open Science, Global challenges and Open Innovation.
We would like to thank you for your valuable input throughout this process, which was fed into the proposal.
In order to ensure the best possible outcome for EU funds for research and innovation, we invite you to tweet messages of support using this shareable image and these three hashtags: #InvestEUresearch #HorizonEU #EUBudget.
These tweets will be retweeted from the official @EU_H2020 Twitter account.
Together let’s do our best to ensure that we secure an EU budget for research and innovation that Europe deserves, for the coming years!

FET Open supports early stage science and technology research exploring new foundations for radically new future technologies by challenging current paradigms and venturing into unknown areas. Early detection of promising new areas, developments and trends, along with attracting new and high-potential research and innovation players, are key factors.
FET Open combines high scientific ambition with concrete technological implications. It aims to attract interdisciplinary consortia that do not shy away from exploring connections between remote disciplines in order to open-up new and potentially game changing technological directions that FET as a whole aims to develop into the leading technology paradigms of the future, including through FET-Proactive projects and FET-Flagship initiatives.
In spite of the high initial risk, the long-term impact can be enormous: these new technologies can become the core for new high-growth companies, for new industries or for radically new ways of tackling societal challenges.
The FET-Open call is a part of the EIC pilot, which supports top-class innovators, entrepreneurs, small companies and scientists with bright ideas and the ambition to scale up internationally. It brings together the parts of Horizon 2020 that provide funding, advice and networking opportunities for those at cutting edge of innovation. In line with this, the EIC pilot offers coaching and mentoring services to funded SMEs. The coaching services focus on strategy, organisation and management, financing, technology assessment and commercialisation. Mentoring aims to develop leadership skills such as resilience, tenacity and strategic insight, qualities that could be the key to the growth of a business. FET Open provides the EIC with a bold exploratory engine that shatters the frontiers of current thinking. All FET-Open projects, even if far from today's markets, are full of great ideas to inspire the entrepreneurial minds that the EIC attracts.
Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation programme has been allocated €97.9 billion, making it the biggest ever research and innovation funding programme.
Press release: EU budget: Commission proposes a modern budget for a Union that protects, empowers and defends
The overall aim of the cross-fertilisation event for multi-actor project coordinators was to contribute to the implementation of multi-actor projects of the H2020 Work Programme, a new participatory R&I approach which started as from the first H2020 call 2014.
To improve the impact and outreach of the multi-actor projects, the event aimed at promoting the exchange of best practices on a number of emerging issues linked to the running projects. A number of inspiring examples were presented and participants were invited to contribute to discussions on how to manage Horizon 2020 Multi-Actor projects successfully. The outcome of the workshop will also help the European Commission to improve its guidance towards multi-actor project partners and coordinators.
