Science|Business is publishing the Commission’s sector-by-sector plans for its €95.5B Horizon Europe programme


What research will Horizon Europe, the EU's €95.5 billion R&D programme, fund? The answers are detailed in the Work Programmes the Commission started publishing in June 2021, but a new round of draft documents are becoming available.

Below, you can find links to all the official Work Programmes for 2021-2022, plus the leaked, draft versions that Science|Business started publishing earlier in January 2021. New, unapproved drafts for the 2023-2024 work programmes were also leaked recently.

Over the past year, Science|Business has tracked the evolution of draft Work Programmes throughout lengthy negotiations between the Commission and Member States.

2023-24 Work Programmes

2021-22 Work Programmes

You can download our 120-page analysis and explanation of the research programme in our own: "Horizon Europe: The Essential Guide."

The official Horizon Europe Work Programmes for 2021-2022 are available on the Commisison's funding & tenders portal.
