Description:

Horizon Europe is the ninth European Research and Innovation Framework programme (2021-2027). In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is one of the key instruments of the European Union's efforts to steer and accelerate Europe's recovery, preparedness and resilience. In the context of a new European Research Area for research and innovation, it aims to strengthen Europe's knowledge base through frontier research, spur breakthrough innovation and support the development and demonstration of innovative solutions, and help restore industrial leadership and open strategic autonomy.

Activity under Horizon Europe is primarily organised under three 'pillars':

Pillar I - Excellent Science

Pillar II - Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness

Pillar III - Innovative Europe

As part of Pillar II, the EU has identified six clusters to help accelerate and steer Europe's digital and green transitions:

Cluster 1 - Health

Cluster 2 - Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society

Cluster 3 - Civil Security for Society

Cluster 4 - Digital, Industry and Space

Cluster 5 - Climate, Energy and Mobility

Cluster 6 - Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

This report covers research funding support available under Cluster 6 - Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

Aim

Activities under this cluster will be key to meeting the objectives of the 'European Green Deal', while largely contributing to 'An economy that works for people' and 'A Europe fit for the digital age'. The most relevant Green Deal initiatives covered are Climate Action, Farm to Fork Strategy, EU Biodiversity Strategy, Circular Economy Action Plan, Zero Pollution Ambitions and the New Industrial Strategy for Europe.

R&I will contribute to the development of a long-term vision for rural areas. In addition, Cluster 6 will support the Common Agricultural Policy, the Common Fisheries Policy, the Maritime Policy, EU Arctic Policy, the EU General Food Law, the EU Bioeconomy Strategy, EU Forest Strategy, the Blue Growth Strategy, the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, the EU Plastics Strategy, the Data Strategy for Europe, the Food 2030 initiative as well as all EU environmental legislation and policies targeting high level of protection for biodiversity, soil, water, air and marine resources, including the Nature Directives, the Pollinators Initiative and the EU Water Framework Directive.

To achieve these goals, Cluster 6 will also take advantage of the data, information and services provided by the European Space programmes Copernicus and Galileo where appropriate.
