HORIZON EUROPE – A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES!
The European Movement International, organised in partnership with the European Commission Talking Europe, with Marc Lemaître, Director-General of the Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD). ENRF joined the event to discuss the EU’s recent work and the future activities carried out by the Directorate General for Research and Innovation, including the Horizon Europe, the new European Bauhaus and the Green Deal and its affects on all Europeans.
According to the Horizon Europe research and innovation programme for the years 2021-2027, the EU missions are the novelty, which support the EU Commission priorities such as:
- The European Green Deal – which is already a concrete element of the new Climate Adaptation Strategy
- The Europe fit for the Digital Age
- The Beating Cancer
- The New European Bauhaus
The EU Missions are a coordinated effort by the Commission to pool the necessary resources in terms of funding programmes, policies and regulations, as well as other activities. As stated by Marc Lemaître “the European Commission has an ambitious agenda for improving research and innovation strategy.”
According to the New European Bauhaus, renovate buildings in a sustainable way is essential for reaching the ambitious goals of the Green Deal. Climate change is a great and challenging issue in Europe and worldwide, also for nurses.
The objectives of the EU missions are to mobilise public and private actors to create and promote the adoption of new innovative solutions and they will support Europe’s transformation into a greener, healthier, more inclusive and resilient continent. They aim to bring tangible benefits to people in Europe and engage Europeans in their design, implementation and monitoring.
Once again, Horizon Europe is reconfirmed as the most impactful tool for improving research and innovation with the aim of creating ever more sustainable solutions to improve health and the environment around us.
