Horizon Europe: Discover the 2024 Missions’ calls for projects!

New to Horizon Europe, the five Missions are part of the second pillar of the Framework Programme. The Missions offer a new approach to generating resolutely innovative solutions and initiatives – by identifying major contemporary societal challenges to be resolved by 2030. The Missions are based on a simple principle: collaboration between different players (citizens, local and regional authorities, businesses, research bodies, etc.). Each Mission offers calls for projects on its own themes.

Euronovia is currently a partner in the Mission Ocean’s SHORE project.

You will find below the calendar of calls for proposals, broken down by title and call number, available budget and submission deadline. The full 2023-2025 Work Programme is available here.
