Horizon Europe is the main Research and Innovation Funding Programme of the European Commission.

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the previous Funding Programme. There are no longer calls, but projects can run until 2024.

Digital Europe

Digital Europe is a Funding Programme focused on bringing digital technology to businesses, citizens and administrations.

Other EU Funding

There are many other relevant EU funding programmes, managed by several agencies and directorates.

Reforming and Enhancing the European R&I System

Similar to the free movement of goods and services, the European Commission wants to expand the European Research area in which researchers and innovators can move around in the EU without encountering legal, technological or physical borders. The primary objective is thus to stimulate the mobility of people active in R&I and diffuse the available knowledge all over Europe.

About this programme

During the new programme period, the European Research Area (ERA) will support a new phase in the development of the ERA and synergies with the European Higher Education Area, which may include a stronger focus on supporting the challenges identified in Pillar II, including missions and partnerships, to ensure that the strategic investments made there deliver maximum impact.

Opening the European Research Area to future challenges requires developing synergies with the European Higher Education Area in a complex landscape of universities and research organisations with a view to underpinning open science, innovative entrepreneurial practices, life-long-learning and upskilling talent and breaking down disciplinary and inter-sectoral barriers to match emerging business and societal needs.

Impacts will include better alignment of national reforms and increased programme level collaboration across Member States and Associated Countries, and will help increase the impact of both national and European investments in research and innovation. This will also support other research and innovation priorities including Open Science, citizens’ science, gender equality and other forms of diversity, improving international cooperation, ethics and integrity, and scientific input to other EU policies.

BEAT-AF - Ground-Breaking Electroporation-based intervention for Atrial Fibrillation treatment

The Horizon2020 project BEAT-AF brings together 9 European renowned clinical centres in France, Belgium, Czechia, Germany and Austria. Together, the consortium strives to revolutionize Atrial Fibrillation (AF) treatment through catheter ablation and contribute to decrease the huge burden of AF in Europe. The BEAT-AF project kicked off in 2021 and will run until 2026. The department of electrophysiology of the AZ Sint-Jan Hospital in Bruges is partner in the project and has so far contributed to the pre-clinical development, the first in man studies and first registries of the revolutionary AF treatment put forward by the consortium. The first pilot studies show that the treatment is safe, effective and efficient.
