The EU Commission conducted a large public consultation on the past, present and future of European Framework Programs for Research and Innovation for the years 2014 - 2027. In total, more than 2000 responses were received.
A first summary has now been published in the Synopsis Report, which contains the results of the consultation section on the Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe (2025 - 2027). The following topics were considered for the first summary:
- Identification of priorities and societal challenges for the future,
- Expected impacts of the six clusters,
- Synergies and complements,
- EU Missions and European Partnerships.
In addition, 108 position papers were taken into account for the evaluation, 40 of which were written by universities or research institutions.
The synopsis report can be found on the European Commission's website.

The EU Commission has published the submission figures for the calls in the Horizon Europe Cluster Health with a submission deadline on April 13, 2023, and in the Cancer Mission with a submission deadline on April 12, 2023,.
The EU Commission will probably inform the applicants about the results of the assessment on August 4, 2023, at the earliest.

The Horizon Europe-funded project Procure4Health has opened a Call for Twinning applications with 660.000 € to support Twinnings activities in Health & Social care in order to share knowledge, build capacities of procurers, define common needs and advance innovation procurement in the EU.

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Health has published a "Call for Experts". Experts with extensive experience in health innovation, entrepreneurship, business, health data and technologies and other fields are sought. The following tasks can be taken over for compensation:
- Analysis of applications,
- Preparation of reports on applications,
- advice and exchange,
- Assessment of the quality of applications.
The "Blind Evaluation" is a pilot for the anonymous appraisal of short applications (stage 1) in the two-stage application process. Part B of the short application must not contain any information that give information on the identity of the applicant. Otherwise the application is considered inadmissible.
This anonymous application assessment is used in all two-stage application procedures in the 2023/2024 calls for proposals in Clusters 1 Health. Since only single-stage tenders are planned for 2023 in the health cluster, this applies to all two-stage tenders for 2024.
The EU Commission has now updated the application form for the short application and added information on "blind evaluation". The updated application form can be found on the Funding & Tenders Portal.
