LUNCH WORKSHOP 4
Thursday, 3 October 2019 | 12.00-13.30 | Kursaal C
What do you think are the most pressing challenges that EU-funded research and innovation should tackle? What are the most important impacts – scientific, technological, economic, societal – that EU-funded research and innovation should aim for?
The Commission is preparing Horizon Europe, the next and most ambitious EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027) with a proposed budget of €100 billion, in an intensive co-design process. The co-design process ensures that Horizon Europe is directed towards what matters most, improves our daily lives and helps turn big societal challenges into innovation opportunities and solutions for a sustainable future.
By bringing together speakers from the EHFGs ‘four pillars’ and drawing on the Forum’s expert participants from health and other relevant sectors and stakeholder groups, an interactive, outcomes-oriented session will be shaped. DG RTD will showcase the outcomes of the co-design process (focusing on the health-related impacts), to reach a full range of stakeholders and gather feedback on the projected direction of the Horizon Europe.
