Horizon Europe
Welcome to the Swedish launch of Horizon Europe - the EU framework program for research and innovation 2021-2027. The webcast took place on February 10, 2021, between 9:30 and 16:00.

During the day we had presentations and discussions that shed light on different parts and perspectives of Horizon Europe. We delve especially into the framework program as a political instrument and strategies for participation.

With Horizon Europe EU strengthens its political ambitions. Research and innovation will be used to realize political objective and address the global challenges facing the EU and the world. This must be done with the citizen at the center.
