Horizon Europe Events
The EU Commission is launching in June/July its main information campaign about the new framework programme „Horizon Europe“ (HE). First, the early „Research and Innovation Days“ (R&I days) will focus this time on the program, both from the political and the practical point of view. Then, the Commission will organize the „Horizon Europe Info Days“, an eight-day long information campaign which goes very deeply into the detail of all aspects of the programme. Both events will be held online. As the call for the health programme opens in June 22th we strongly recommend to participate at the relevant parts of the events.
