Strengthening science and technology, addressing global challenges

Horizon Europe objectives and advantages

Horizon Europe is aimed at strengthening the scientific and technological base of EU economies in order to help tackle major global challenges and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The programme will also strengthen the European Research Area (ERA).


Horizon Europe also aims to boost the EU’s innovation capacity and competitiveness, including that of its industries and jobs. It builds synergies with national and regional funding, as well as with other European-funded programmes.

Horizon Europe will deliver on citizens’ priorities and sustain Europe’s socioeconomic model and values. It will also deliver on the EU strategic priorities and support the development and implementation of Union policies.

To achieve this aim and build on the success of its predecessor, Horizon 2020 (2014 – 2020), Horizon Europe continues to support the whole research and innovation cycle in an integrated manner.
