About this programme

The overall objective of Research Infrasctructure Programme is to empower the European Union through world-class and accessible Research and Technology Infrastructures. These research infrastructures are important and crucial for enabling research and innovation and for stimulating multidisciplinary and data-intensive science.

The RI work programme under Horizon Europe will help to address the global environmental, social and economic challenges, in line with the renewed ERA, which requires an explicit contribution of research and technology infrastructures into Europe’s wider policy objectives, thus maximizing the contribution of science and technology to the needs of the society and increasing Europe’s competitiveness. In this regard, the European RIs will also contribute to the objectives of Horizon Europe clusters, missions and partnerships in Pillar II as well as to support its innovation part.

NCP Flanders went to Leuven to interview Frederic Houbie, the Research Projects Manager at Luciad, about how he sees Horizon 2020. Luciad is a partner in the MARISA project, which is a collaborative RIA project submitted to an ICT call topic
