Launch of Horizon Europe in the United States



Thursday, May 27 
11 A.M. - 12:30 P.M. ET 

Horizon Europe, the European Union’s new research and innovation program, is the largest multinational research program in the world.

Join us on May 27 to learn about Horizon Europe and the opportunities it offers to US researchers, innovators and institutions.

The $116 billion (€95.5 billion) Horizon Europe program will run from 2021-2027, and in addition to funding bottom up research, is designed to focus on some of the world's biggest challenges, from cancer and climate change, to the health of our cities and food supplies. It offers U.S. researchers the possibility to collaborate with large European projects, as well as to apply for generous grants available to individuals interested in spending part of their careers in Europe. It also presents opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovators with breakthrough, disruptive ideas interested in scaling them up in Europe.
