The European Commission has launched the largest public consultation ever held on the past, present, and future of the EU R&I framework programmes. The consultation will evaluate the performance of the Horizon 2020 programme and the ongoing Horizon Europe, and also shape the Horizon Europe Strategic Plan 2025-2027. Commissioner Mariya Gabriel invites all interested parties to participate and make their voices heard.

The public consultation provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders to provide feedback on the completed Horizon 2020 programme, its achievements and shortcomings, the procedures associated with the application process, and funding management.

The online questionnaire is accessible in English, German, and French, and participants can reply in all EU languages. Stakeholders are also invited to submit position papers. The public consultation will run for 12 weeks, closing on 23 February 2023.

The outcomes of the public consultation will help shape the future of the EU R&I framework programmes and make a difference in the advancement of research and innovation. Don't miss this chance to make your voice heard.
