Horizon Europe Strategic Plan 2025-2027 published

On March 20, 2024, the European Commission published the second Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe. Based on the strategic plan, the work programs and funding calls for 2025 to 2027 will be developed.
The plan sets out three key strategic orientations for EU research and innovation funding for the last three years of Horizon Europe:

  • green transition;
  • digital transition;
  • a more resilient, competitive, inclusive and democratic Europe.

The orientations aim to address global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, digital transformation and an aging population.
Nine new European partnerships will be named, which will be set up from 2025. A partnership with “Brain Health” is planned for the health sector.
In addition, the priorities for each cluster - including the health cluster - are described in a separate chapter.
