European Parliament voted the partial agreement on Horizon Europe

The European Parliament voted today the partial agreement on Horizon Europe, the next European research and innovation programme due to start in 2021. EPP rapporteur for the Programme Dr Christian Ehler highlights the key achievements:

“Europe is at a historic crossroads, reason why European Parliament, Commission and Council agreed on a text before the elections. Thanks to the political willingness of the three Institutions, and the ambition of the Romanian Presidency, we were able to agree in only 3 months of negotiations, historically unprecedented, on a programme worth over €100 billion”.
