European Innovation Council

Orientations towards the first Strategic Plan implementing the research and innovation framework programme Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe will be based on two legal acts: one laying down its structure, rules for participation and dissemination, the other containing the Specific Programme that sets out thematic clusters and the broad lines of action for future research and innovation activities. In April 2019 the European Parliament and the Council reached a political agreement on the two legal acts.
