Under the EU's broader €95.5 billion research and innovation programme, Horizon Europe, funding will contribute to the EU's climate goals, greater energy resilience and the development of key digital technologies. It will also address targeted actions to support Ukraine, increase economic resilience and contribute to a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will help to achieve a stronger European research and innovation ecosystem, including through wider collaboration of researchers and innovators across Europe, increased mobility and funding for world-class research infrastructures.

Delivering on climate action and digital transformation

€5.67 billion (over 42% of the Work Programme budget) is dedicated to achieving key climate action objectives, finding innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change.

More than €4.5 billion will support the EU's digital transition, including the development of key digital technologies and promoting their integration into our lives. There will also be substantial support for a "new European Bauhaus", which aims to demonstrate the benefits of the green transition in people's everyday lives and living spaces.

The programme will also support critical infrastructure against physical and cyber threats to strengthen the EU's resilience.

The first calls for proposals are open on the EU's funding and calls portal from 7 December 2022. Horizon Europe information days for potential applicants will take place between 6 December 2022 and 16 February 2023.
