Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the 9th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Commission and successor of Horizon 2020 that will run from 2021 till 2027.

Structure of Horizon Europe

The structure of the programme and details about the provisional agreement are published on this webpage of the European Commission. It includes links to the Missions that will be installed and the status about the support to European Partnerships with the EU Member States.

Horizon Europe will have three pillars and one additional component to support activities in Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area (ERA).

  • The Excellence Science pillar will promote scientific excellence and will maintain a bottom up approach. This pillar will include bottom up programmes as ERC, MSCA and Research Infrastructures.
  • The pillar of Global Challenges and European Industrial Competiveness including the Joint Research Center will feed into the strategic priorities of Europe and will be divided into six thematic clusters.
  • The Innovative Europe pillar will target market-creating innovation and SME growth. The core feature of this pillar is the European Innovation Council (EIC) that will enhance Europe’s capabilities at the forefront of the next wave of disruptive, market-creating innovation.
  • A fourth component on Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area completes the Horizon Europe structure. This component will focus on activities that will increase the participation of low R&I performing member states and strengthen the European Research Area.

Missions

Missions are one of the main novelties introduced by the European Commission in Horizon Europe. Missions aim to deliver solutions for the great challenges faced by the world.

Five missions areas have been identified:

For each mission area a mission board has been established. The mission board will advise the European Commission on how to specify, design and implement missions for Horizon Europe. More information on the mission boards and its members can be found here.

The missions will be launched in 2021 as part of Horizon Europe.

PBNv2 - a MSCA ITN in the field of automotive R&D

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.
