Denmark offers input for successor to Horizon 2020

The Danish Government has begun examining Danish representation of interests as part of the negotiations for the next European framework programme for research and innovation.

Jun 07, 2017

Minister for Higher Education and Science Søren Pind has sent an early position paper to Commissioner Carlos Moedas and the other EU member states on the Danish interests relating to the next framework programme for research and innovation. The current framework programme Horizon 2020 has a budget of approx. EUR 75 billion.

The Government's focus includes maintaining the reputation of the EU as a research giant through supporting the strongest research, solving the challenge of innovation in Europe, and achieving a better connection between research and education.

The position paper has been developed in cooperation with universities, interest groups and other stakeholders.

When the European Commission presents a proposal for the successor to Horizon 2020, the following negotiation process will take 1½-2 years. The next framework programme is expected to cover the period 2021-2027.
