The European Commission published the drafts of the majority of the work programmes under Horizon Europe for the 2023 – 2024. These drafts have not been adopted or endorsed by the European Commission, but they were published to provide potential participants with the currently expected main lines of this work programme.
According to the European Commission, actions included in these work programmes will help accelerate the clean energy transition in line with the REPowerEU Plan, improve food security, cybersecurity, help ensure open strategic autonomy and reduce dependencies on critical raw materials, and accelerate delivery of the Green Deal. For example, a package of actions across the ‘Climate, Energy and Mobility’, ‘Digital, Industry and Space’ and ‘Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment’ clusters in particular will aim to speed up the clean energy transition. In addition, this work programme includes targeted actions to support Ukraine such as reinforcing Ukrainian researchers’ access to European research infrastructures while the EU Mission for Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities will support a number of Ukrainian cities in integrating the principles of climate neutrality in their reconstruction.
With the 2023 – 2024 Horizon Europe work programme, the EU will invest around €13.5 billion in research and innovation.

The survey can be completed in 15 minutes, comprising multiple-choice questions and free text spaces to add comments and insights regarding any ongoing, recent or past R&I Framework Programme collaborative projects you have participated in (Horizon 2020 and/or Horizon Europe). With your feedback, you will help European innovation professionals be better prepared to support you in future EU projects and advocate for improved framework conditions for EC-funded research and innovation projects.
The survey is freely accessible here.
