[Google Translate] The new Horizon Europe Framework Programme targets research and innovation missions focused on the needs of European citizens. The budget of FP9 is to be approved within the European budget 2021-2027, which was discussed at the European Council of 28-29 June.
There are many innovations announced by the European Commission regarding the ninth framework programme for research and innovation, Horizon Europe, which is expected to allocate a total of 100 billion euros for the period 2021-2027. Most of the funds (97.6 billion) will be invested directly in the new Framework Programme (of which 3.5 billion will be allocated from the InvestEU Fund), while 2.4 billion euros should be allocated to the Euratom research and training programme. The final definition of the budget becomes part of the broader discussion of the European budget 2021-2027 scheduled in the European Council of 28-29 June.
The hope is that the final approval of the EU budget 2021-2027 can be found by 2019, so that all the necessary measures can be developed in time to support a transition that will also see the continuity of research funding. The new Horizon Europe programme should become operational on 1 January 2021.
