Horizon Europe (2021-2027)

Summary

Horizon Europe is the European Union (EU) funding programme for the period 2021 – 2027, which targets the sectors of research and innovation. The programme’s budget is around € 95.5 billion, of which € 5.4 billion is from NextGenerationEU to stimulate recovery and strengthen the EU’s resilience in the future, and € 4.5 billion is additional aid.

Programme Description

Horizon Europe promotes excellence and provide valuable support to leading researchers and innovators in advancing the systemic change needed to ensure a green, healthy and resilient Europe.

The programme promotes scientific excellence through the European Research Council (ERC) to enable top researchers to expand their knowledge to meet our economic and social challenges. Marie Skłodowska-Curie Scholarships and Exchanges will help the best talent among young researchers to expand their knowledge and skills. Europe will benefit from the scientific advice, technical support and research of the Joint Research Center (JRC), the Commission’s Office for Science and Knowledge.

The programme will also support collaborative research on the social challenges facing Europe and strengthen technological and industrial capacity through clusters covering the full range of global challenges. At the same time, a number of European partnerships will encourage broad public and private sector involvement, covering critical areas such as energy, transport, biodiversity, health, food and cyclicality.

Horizon Europe will also encourage participation in research, reduce the research-innovation gap and strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) through a wide range of measures to support countries with low research-innovation performance, for example through the establishment of centres of excellence, the improvement of their skills and the facilitation of collaborative links.

In addition, the programme will introduce new features, such as the European Innovation Council (EIC) and the EU missions. The EIC, which is already running on a pilot phase, will receive a budget of over €10 billion to support emerging and revolutionary innovations from SMEs, start-ups and mid-cap companies and will complement the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

European missions will focus on ambitious, time-bound and achievable goals for solving common European challenges. The goals to be achieved by 2030 are the following:

  • saving 3 million lives from cancer,
  • 100 climate-neutral cities,
  • healthy oceans, seas and inland waters,
  • healthy soils and food,
  • areas resistant to climate change.

Particular attention will also be paid to coordinating activities funded through Horizon Europe with those supported by other EU programmes, such as InvestEU, Erasmus+, the funds under the EU cohesion policy umbrella, Digital Europe, the Connecting Europe Facility and the Recovery and Resilience Facility, to promote faster dissemination at national and regional level and to exploit the results of research and innovation. Importantly, for the first time in the history of the framework programme, regions can, on a voluntary basis, transfer part of their regional funding to Horizon Europe for use in research and innovation activities in their region.

  • Better understanding of citizens’ behavioural and psychological reactions in the event of a disaster or crisis situation

    Expected

    Code: 19607 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-04 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    It is necessary to better investigate how historical, cultural and emotional factors (e.g. anxiety, panic etc.) during a disaster or a crisis influence rational actions, evaluations of options and information seeking. In addition, the impact of disasters on health also requires looking into the short and long-term consequences of exposure to high stress/threat levels bears, in particular for mental health.

  • Improved impact forecasting and early warning systems supporting the rapid deployment of first responders in vulnerable areas

    Expected

    Code: 19604 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-05 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Enhanced risk and crisis assessment and preparedness to natural hazards rely on tools using different types of data, information and forecasts (e.g. meteorological data, physical data related to geohazards and climate projections etc.) which may enable to anticipate the occurrence of disasters. The aim would be to design EU-wide decision-support and information systems supporting planning authorities and civil protection agencies in the rapid deployment of first responders and communication to citizens in vulnerable areas in the case of extreme climate events or geological disasters.

  • Improved quality assurance / quality control of data used in decision-making related to risk management of natural hazards, accidents and CBRN events

    Code: 19255 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-FCT-01-01 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Police Authorities deal with a growing complexity of crime scenes containing various types of trace evidence items that can also present safety hazards for the forensic experts and crime scene investigators. There is a need to improve these processes and make them more accurate, effective and sensitive in such a complex scenario, by employing modern approaches, for instance (but not limited to) nanotechnology, next generation sequencing or Artificial Intelligence. Also there is a need to modernise forensic science for the professionalisation of crime scene investigations.

  • Improved international cooperation addressing first responder capability gaps

    Expected

    Code: 19252 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-07 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Projects’ results are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:

    • Improved real-time detection, tracking and analysis of different situations, incidents and risks 
    • More targeted actionable intelligence and more efficient command operations due to the fast analysis of different information sources
    • Enhanced European and global interoperability for different types of first responders (e.g. firefighters, medical responders, police, civil protection)
    • Availability of first responder solutions that are oriented on internationally defined requirements and recognised practices, and thus can be used with different national systems and equipment

  • Enhanced situational awareness and preparedness of first responders and improved capacities to minimise time-to-react in urban areas in the case of CBRN-E-related events

    Expected

    Code: 19239 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-08 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Addressing first responders’ needs requires innovative actions resulting in technological, institutional and capacity-building solutions that are tailored to the risks, affordable, accepted by citizens, and customised and implemented for the (cross-sectoral) needs of practitioners. Innovative solutions are required to enable first responders to get a faster overview of any disaster situation based on the knowledge of past events and prevention actions.

  • Enhanced citizen preparedness in the event of a disaster or crisis-related emergency

    Expected

    Code: 19236 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-01 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Improving societal resilience to disasters or crises relies on various features related to preparedness of citizens, communities, education systems, public administrations, business companies and practitioners. Individual, public and multi-level actions are needed in disaster risk management and they have huge implications on potentially reducing losses and increasing the operational capacity of responders, along with significant impacts on the emergency planning and management phases and its relation to continuous operations and existing safety management.

  • Enhanced preparedness and management of High-Impact Low-Probability or unexpected events

    Expected

    Code: 19224 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-02 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    The risk landscape has changed significantly over the last decades. With new and emerging risks and risk magnifiers such as climate change, cyber threats, infectious diseases and terrorism, countries need to anticipate and prepare for the unexpected and difficult to predict. High-impact, low-probability risks (HILP/Hi-Lo) can be understood as “events or occurrences that cannot easily be anticipated, arise randomly and unexpectedly, and have immediate effects and significant impacts”.

  • Better understanding the influence of organisational cultures and human interactions in the forensic context as well as a common lexicon

    Expected

    Code: 19166 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-FCT-01-02 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Projects’ results are expected to contribute to all of the following outcomes:

    • Increased European common forensic investigation capabilities and cross-border exchanges thanks to a better understanding of main organisational cultures and of human interactions in the forensic context, and of the main causes of biases in interpretation and reasoning;
    • Strengthened bridges between different actors in an investigative process through an improved non-ambiguous communication and enhanced communication mechanisms at all levels;
    • Improved European common forensics investigation capabilities and cross-border exchanges thanks to a common, modern lexicon that is used by forensic institutes and Police Authorities, validated against practitioners’ needs and requirements, to facilitate their (specialised) daily work on investigating terrorism and other forms of serious crime;
    • Development of safer justice outcomes through an increased understanding of how human interactions impacts on decisions at all levels of an investigative process;

  • Enhanced fight against the abuse of online gaming culture by extremists

    Expected

    Code: 19159 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-FCT-01-03 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Research is needed to analyse the use of online gaming culture and structure by violent extremists as well as their modus operandi through video game chatrooms and forums.
    Regarding video games themselves, an in-depth analysis is needed on how the type of the video game, of its theme, design, aesthetics etc. plays a role in the choice of the chatroom to be used as a recruitment area. As far as video game chatrooms, including social media platforms discussing video games, are concerned, dissemination strategies of violent extremists through them as well as their ways of grooming should be analysed.

  • Public spaces are protected while respecting privacy and avoiding mass surveillance

    Expected

    Code: 19149 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-FCT-01-04 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    The number of different tools for the surveillance of public spaces has been growing at massive pace in most European cities. CCTV-systems in public spaces are the most evident examples. They have been expanded in terms of quantity (number of CCTV in public spaces, such as squares, streets or touristic sites), quality (improved solution of images, possibility of tracking and automatic pattern-recognition) and also scope (CCTV present in areas like parks, 24/7 recording as standard due to higher data storage capacities).

  • Effective fight against trafficking in human beings

    Expected

    Code: 19119 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-FCT-01-07 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Trafficking in human beings is a serious and organised form of crime that involves the criminal exploitation of vulnerable people, the goal of which is the economic gain. The proposed activities would aim to contribute to countering the culture of impunity by increasing the capacity of Police Authorities to detect the trafficking crime, the suspected perpetrators and the victims and to disrupt the business model and/or establish responsibility of all those involved in the trafficking chain.

  • Effective fight against corruption

    Expected

    Code: 19103 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-FCT-01-05 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Corruption, a criminal category that ranges from bribery of public officials via sports to abuse of power and money laundering of proceeds from crime, is a strong enabler for crime and terrorism, and, as such, it constitutes a threat to security. Firstly, there is a need to estimate the impact of corruption. Secondly, the role of corruption as an enabler of other crimes deserves analysis. Thirdly, innovative societal and technological solutions for prevention, detection and investigation of this type of crime are needed, including also the collection of cross-border court-proof evidence.

    Proposals should develop a societal development plan that builds upon a people-centred approach and examines how social innovations on security are organised, how they work, how and why they are adopted or rejected, their direct and indirect benefits and costs, including in vulnerability assessments, how they sustain, and which interfaces with other more formal security agents are established.

  • Knowledge Networks for security Research & Innovation

    Expected

    Code: 18930 | Identifier Code: HORIZON-CL3-2022-SSRI-01-02 | Programme name: Horizon Europe (2021-2027) | Sub-program: Civil security for society (Cluster 3) (2021-2027) | Start submission calls: 30/06/2022 | End submission calls: 23/11/2022

    Investment in security research needs to be designed taking into consideration how and when it can deliver outcomes that contribute to the development of security capabilities. Therefore, research needs to be undertaken, from its very early stages, in a way that addresses real needs. The programming of research is highly conditioned by the quality, reliability and timeliness of the evidence that supports its decision making process. This includes the identification and understanding of the contextual elements that can or will influence or be influenced by the research (process), the research team and the research projects themselves.
