As part of the co-design process, the European Commission (EC) launched an online public consultation for the preparation of the implementation of Horizon Europe (HEU). The inputs collected will feed the work to prepare a “Strategic Plan” for HEU, which will then guide the Work Programmes and calls for proposals for HEU’s first 4 years (2021-2024). The consultation is open until 8 September. Overall, the consultation will aim at helping identify impacts, raise debate and new ideas. While EARTO will send an overarching answer based on previous priorities published last year, EARTO encourages all its Members to take part in the consultation by answering the questionnaire.
The EC will organise the European R&I Days on 24-26 September in Brussels, expecting to welcome 3.000 participants. This event will also serve to gather inputs from the R&I community in the shaping of HEU strategic priorities. EARTO is in discussion with the EC to organise joint activities.
