7. ISE position paper on Horizon Europe

Considering the relatively low funding budgeted for Horizon Europe (i.e., no substantial increase with respect to H2020), it is important to address from the beginning structural features to make it effective and balanced among the three pillars. The analysis of the framework programme presented in the position paper takes into account its impact on many sectors, disciplines, and geographies.

There are three main areas that need more consideration to further enhance the effectiveness and pan-European societal impact of the programme:

  • foster interdisciplinary approaches within the programme
  • increase the efforts towards supporting EU-13 countries improve their R&I system
  • strengthen the R&I cycle in pillar 2

These three aspects are strongly interconnected and tackling them together will improve European R&I capabilities well beyond the time span of this framework programme.

ISE is interested in getting feedback from members in different EU countries to better understand the perspective of local research communities. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate your comments on the paper.
