The autumn brings a major transition period in Brussels, between a new Parliament taking office in July and the next Commission to be appointed by year end. In the research and innovation (R&I) domain, budget discussions and strategic planning will inevitably headline the agenda. Yet beyond the legislative processes, a range of public dialogues will address the impact targets for Horizon Europe in line with long-term EU goals and global challenges.
This Science|Business conference - ahead of DG Research's major stakeholder event in late September - offers an opportunity for the wider European R&I community to debate the right strategy and ambitions for Horizon Europe. On one level, it will invite reflection on the legacy of and lessons learned from Horizon 2020. More importantly, however, it will look to the future and gather high level recommendations for the incoming Parliament and Commission on what Horizon Europe might realistically be expected to deliver through to 2030.
