Joint statement for an ambitious Horizon Europe Programme

ESC and 92 other European associations urge the EU Institutions to make research, development and innovation (RD&I) a priority within the next Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027.

We therefor call on the EU Council to raise the Horizon Europe budget to at least €120bn, of which at least 60% should be dedicated to the ‘Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness’ pillar.
