The European Commission has adopted the main work programme of Horizon Europe for the period 2021-2022, with a total budget of EUR 14.7 billion in funding for the two years. These investments aim at accelerating the green and digital transitions.
The European Green Deal will be supported with EUR 5.8 billion in total.
