5 Horizon Europe Info Days and Events to Attend in 2021

The first edition of the Horizon Europe Info Days took place online between 28 June and 16 July 2021. This event allowed interested organizations in Horizon Europe and other EU research and innovation stakeholders to receive information and ask questions about the new Horizon Europe programme. These questions concerned the Horizon Europe 2021-2027 novelties like the main funding instruments and its processes.

The summer Horizon Europe Info Days had ten thematic topics with exclusive discussions and hands-on sessions. Specifically, each session was dedicated to a different Horizon Europe cluster or part of the new programme. There are more Horizon Europe Info Days coming soon in October that will follow the same concept as the previous ones

If you are interested in the Horizon Europe programme and would like to have your questions answered, participating in the Horizon Europe Info Days would be your best chance.

What are the Horizon Europe Clusters?

A novelty of the Horizon Europe programme is that it is divided into clusters, each addressing different global and European industrial competitiveness challenges.

The Horizon Europe clusters are the following:

  1. Cluster 1 – Health
  2. Cluster 2 - Culture, Creativity & Inclusive Society
  3. Cluster 3 - Civil Security for Society
  4. Cluster 4 - Digital, Industry & Space
  5. Cluster 5 - Climate, Energy & Mobility
  6. Cluster 6 - Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture & Environment

During the Horizon Europe Info Days, each day is dedicated to a single cluster followed by a brokerage event. Brokerage events are intended to bring together potential applicants and stakeholders of the new Research & Innovation Programme.
