Welcome to the annual Science Business conference 8–9 February! The theme of this years fully online-conference is Horizon Europe: The First Assessment – how is the programme going, and what can be done to further improve Horizon Europe? VA’s Secretary General is one of the speakers.

Horizon Europe, the EU’s biggest-ever research and innovation programme, is finally underway. So how is the programme going? In this annual Science|Business Network conference, members and guests will offer the first public assessments of Horizon Europe:

  • How is the standard Horizon application and evaluation process working?
  • Are the industrial partnerships simpler or more complicated than in Horizon 2020?
  • How successful does it now appear that Horizon Europe can be in its stated aims to help solve climate change, improve health, and manage a digital transition?
  • How is collaboration with non-EU countries going?
  • Will Horizon Europe succeed in bridging the East-West innovation gap?
