EC mobilises €123 million for research and innovation to combat the threat of virus
The Commission is mobilising €123 million from Horizon Europe, the new EU research and innovation programme, for urgent research into coronavirus variants. This first emergency funding under Horizon Europe adds to a range of EU-funded research and innovation actions to fight the coronavirus and contributes to the Commission's overall action to prevent, mitigate and respond to the impact of coronavirus variants, in line with the new European bio-defence preparedness plan HERA Incubator.
Horizon Europe, the new EU framework programme, launched in 2021 and replaced Horizon 2020. The new programme offers a large variety of funding opportunities for research and innovation activities through calls for proposals set out in the Horizon Europe work programmes.
