About Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the name of the successor programme to Horizon 2020, EU’s big framework programme for research and innovation.

The Structure of Horizon Europe

As with Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe will be structured around three pillars with different sub-programmes and a series of cross-disciplinary initiatives. However, the content will vary.

Pillar I consists of the European Research Council (ERC), among others, which supports Europe’s best researchers, and of the sub-programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions that supports the education and mobility of researchers.

Pillar II consists of six thematic clusters which will support transnational consortia through strategic work programmes and calls.

Pillar III consists of a new independent organisation, the European Innovation Council, among others, which will launch new forms of innovation support and innovation loans.
