The Guild together with 14 European university and research organisations call for an ambitious Horizon Europe budget to foster excellent cross-border research and innovation (R&I). This investment is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and build a prosperous future for European society.
On 3 July, The Guild held an interdisciplinary debate on Horizon Europe’s Strategic Planning process, which determines the priorities for challenge-led funding at EU level.
The Guild congratulates the seventeen winning alliances on the opportunity to become truly integrated European Universities.
In the position paper published today, The Guild’s academic communities identify priority areas for Horizon Europe’s Health cluster.
The Guild has published a contribution to the Strategic Planning process of Horizon Europe, presenting principles for the implementation of horizontal aspects of the programme. The document aims at helping decision-makers translate the legal framework into practices that would allow Horizon Europe to succeed in its mission.
