Update to the Horizon Europe ‘main’ work programme 2023-2024 and limited extension to 2025

Published on | 3 months ago

Programmes Horizon Europe  

The Commission has adopted the amendment to the Horizon Europe ‘main’ work programme 2023-2024 and limited extension to 2025. It includes the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Research Infrastructures, all the Clusters under pillar II, Missions, European Innovation Ecosystems and Widening Participation & strengthening the European Research Area. 

The amendment includes a substantional update for the Missions with a range of new topics/calls (using 2024 budget), following the outcomes of the EU Missions assessment. 

The adopted texts with the updates to the work programme have been made available in pdf form on the Funding & Tenders Portal (under reference documents here). Information on the specific changes applicable to the different Horizon Europe subprogrammes, will be published on the respective subdomain pages on our website.

The limited extension to 2025 concerns, among others, new topics/calls using 2025 budget, only for recurrent actions without strong political focus and with a strong need for continuity (among others Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions & Widening participation). However, the main Horizon Europe Work Programme 2025 is still under developments and is expected only to be officially published in the first months of 2025.

Miricle - Mine Risk Clearance for Europe

The Miricle project, ‘Mine Risk Clearance for Europe’, obtained funding under the European Defence Industrial Development programme call ‘Underwater control contributing to resilience at sea’. The main objective of the project was to achieve a European and sovereign capacity in future mine warfare and create a path for the next generation ‘made in Europe’ countermeasure solutions. In order to realise this objective, Miricle addressed various stages: studies, design, prototyping and testing. These stages inter alia included the successful testing of an XL Unmanned Underwater Vehicle, a protototyped mine disposal system and multiple innovative systems to detect buried mines. Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), was one of the five Belgian partners in the consortium. Within the project, VLIZ was able to forward its research on the acoustic imaging of the seabed to spatially map and visualize buried structures and objects - in this case buried mines - in the highest possible detail. VLIZ also led the work on ‘Port and Offshore Testing’, building on the expertise of the institute in the field of marine operations and technology.
