FFG: Focus on Europe and International Affairs 06/2021

With 95.5 billion euros over seven years, Horizon Europe is an important signal at the right time. After more than 40 online events with more than 6,000 participants, the final go-ahead for the world's largest research and innovation programme was given last week:

Austrian government members (Heinz Faßmann, Leonore Gewessler, Elisabeth Köstinger, Margarete Schramböck, Klaudia Tanner), the responsible EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, WKO President Harald Mahrer and FFG Managing Directors Henrietta Egerth and Klaus Pseiner discussed the objectives and expectations of the programme under the motto "Horizon Europe: Shaping our Future!

The first Horizon Europe call for proposals already has a total budget of over 10 billion euros. The majority of calls for proposals are expected to open in April/May. Many work programmes and the proposal template are already available in draft form. The FFG contact persons will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
