Horizon Europe is a huge innovation funding programme. The subprogrammes have lot's of generic aspects in common, and best practises to take into account.
This pillar focuses on the development of science through a threefold approach. This means first of all creation and diffusion of new knowledge, skills, technologies and solutions. Also it looks how we can build more world class research infrastructures and improve their access for researchers. Finally, it will try to boost the training and mobility of researchers.
In this part, the European Commission is looking for projects and solutions that can solve current and future global challenges. This is therefore all about how Research and Innovation can improve our society.
This transversal and horizontal initiative will support activities that help EU Member States to make most of their national research and innovation potential. In addition, this component will also promote an European Research Area (ERA) where researchers, scientific knowledge and technology can circulate freely.
EU missions are commitments to solve some of the greatest challenges facing our world like fighting cancer, adapting to climate change, protecting our oceans, living in greener cities and ensuring soil health and food. They are an integral part of the Horizon Europe framework programme beginning in 2021.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) European Innovative Training Network “PBNv2 - Next generation Pass-By Noise approaches for new powertrain vehicles” started in May 2017. Their research has the shared objective of investigating the possibilities to decrease pass-by noise of vehicles.
The project is a collaboration between 17 research institutions and companies in the European automotive R&D and provides a learning environment for 14 PhD fellows. The Belgian partner is the Noise and Vibration Research Group of KU Leuven, and this project is one of the many Horizon 2020 MSCA Innovative Training Networks that the KU Leuven research group participates in.
