Horizon Europe missions proposed

Under the Horizon Europe Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2021-2027) five missions aim to deliver solutions to major challenges for Europe. The five possible missions proposed by the Mission Boards, the independent experts advising the European Commission, are:

• Conquering Cancer: Mission Possible

• Accelerating The Transition To A Climate Prepared And Resilient Europe

• Regenerating our Ocean and Waters

• 100 Climate-Neutral Cities by 2030 - by and for the citizens

• Caring for Soil is Caring for Life

Future timeline

A number of online citizen engagement events will take place over the summer to further listen to the priorities of Europeans and gather their ideas. The Mission Boards will hand over their final recommendations to the Commission at the ‘European Research & Innovation Days’ (22-24 September 2020). The Commission will announce its selected missions at the end of 2020. The missions will launch in 2021 as part of Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation programme.
