If you are interested in the strategic dimension

The various work programmes with calls for proposals are drafted by several Programme Committees consisting of delegates of the participating countries in Horizon Europe.

Representatives from EWI (Department of Economy, Science and Innovation) inform on the drafting process and collect input from stakeholders located in Flanders to bring it on the Belgian and European level, which results in a concrete work programme. This input can typically consist of suggestions for new topics, requests for adaptations on scale, content of proposed projects or feedback on former participants.

You can contact the Horizon Europe programme committee delegate from Flanders of the programme of your interest. As soon as the committees for Horizon EU will be composed, the  information will be added here. Until then, please contact the NCP of your domain in Horizon Europe.

If you want to be connected to international partners
