The JPI HDHL welcomes HorizonEU the proposal for the next European R&I Framework Programme 2021-2027, officially presented by the EU Commission on June 7th 2018. The overall policy for the new framework programme will be an "evolution and not revolution" of Horizon2020 and the programme will be implemented through three main pillars:

1. Open Science,
2. Global Challenges & Industrial Competitiveness and
3. Open Innovation.

In particular, pillar 2 includes five clusters of which Health and Food & Natural resources are specifically focusing on the strategic domains of the JPI HDHL.
Horizon Europe is an ambitious €100 billion research and innovation programme whose main objectives are: to support the creation and diffusion of high-quality knowledge; strengthen the impact of R&I in supporting EU policies; foster all forms of innovation and strengthen market deployment.

Under the European Commission’s proposal €10 billion will be dedicated to the “Food and Natural Resources” and €7.7 billion to the Health clusters in the “Global Challenges” pillar 2. According to the proposal, this budget will be used to support the transition to sustainable consumption and production and restoring planetary health.

New approaches to partnerships (co-programming, co-funding, istitutionalised) are, along with regular calls for proposals and R&I Missions connecting to society and citizen’s needs, the way in which the thematic clusters of Global Challenges pillar will be implemented. Specific missions will be co-designed with Member States, stakeholders and citizens.

Furthermore, extended association possibilities to strengthen the international cooperation and open science policy (e.g. FAIR principle, open access) to reinforce openness will be some of the key novelties of HorizonEU. Horizon Europe will be implemented through multi-annual work programmes and calls for proposals and monitored through key impact pathways to track progress.
