Horizon Europe, the EU’s Framework Programme for research and innovation succeeding Horizon 2020, will run from 2021 to 2027 with a total budget of €95.5 billion (or about CNY735 billion). It helps researchers and innovators to develop and deploy their ideas and to create new products and services. It supports mobility of researchers as well as excellent science by teaming up the best talent and equipping them with world-class infrastructures.
The programme is open to researchers and innovators from around the globe. Some specific topics of Horizon Europe target cooperation with China through flagship initiatives in selected areas, such as Food, Agriculture and Biotechnologies. This brochure explains the contents of the Framework Programme Horizon Europe and intends to be a practical guide for Chinese researchers to better understand the options offered by Europe to be involved in its various funding instruments.
