On 1 September 2020, the European Commission (EC) launched an online consultation on Horizon Europe’s first Strategic Plan for 2021-2024, which will be open until 18 September 2020 and aims to guide the work programmes and topics for the new research programme’s first four years. The survey will gather input to help validate impacts, spark debates and new ideas. According to the EC, the input collected will support the implementation of Horizon Europe, especially for the programme’s second pillar ‘Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness’. It also plans to help align research and innovation priorities with EU policy priorities such as solutions for a sustainable future. During the upcoming European Research and Innovation Days which will be held on 22-24 September 2020, a key event in this co-design process will will be discussed.
