Horizon Europe

This webpage covers the Horizon Europe strictly as part of funding projects related to tourism.

Why is it relevant to tourism?

Horizon Europe is a research and innovation framework programme, running from 2021-27.

It has a budget of around €95.5 billion for 2021-27 (in current prices). This includes €5.4 billion from NextGenerationEU to boost the economic recovery and make the EU more resilient for the future, as well as an additional reinforcement of €4 billion.

Pillar 2 of Horizon Europe - Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness - supports research on societal challenges and reinforces technological and industrial capacities through clusters. It sets EU missions with ambitious goals tackling some of our biggest problems. Pillar 2 also includes activities pursued by the Joint Research Centre, which supports EU and national policymakers with independent scientific evidence and technical support.

The Digital, Industry and Space work programme has been available since March 2023.
