The Ministers and MEPs have set their positions on Horizon Europe 

Horizon Europe is the next framework programme on research and innovation for the years 2021 to 2027, as proposed by the European Commission. 

On 12th December, the European Parliament also adopted its position in plenary. The key points of the vote are: 

  • The resolution asks an increase of the programme budget of €36.5 billion to €120 billion in 2018 prices (€135.25 billion in current prices) compared to the European Commission’s proposal.
  • MEPs wants to increase support for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by reintroducing the possibility of grants for incremental innovation, with a ring-fenced budget of €2.5 billion.
  • The resolution introduces innovative measures, such as widening fellowships to strengthen European Research Areas, and reduce the scientific and technological divide.
  • MEPs underlined the necessity to give priority to programmes that include women, SMEs or participants from lower-performing EU countries when deciding on two equally strong applications.

On 30th November 2018, the Council of ministers agreed on its position (partial general approach) on the regulation on Horizon Europe. Still some issues remain open (“square bracketed”) such as the funding level. See previous article 

So the negotiations can start between the two institutions which need to agree on the final text.
