OEE signs letter calling for higher Horizon Europe budget

24.09.2019

Research and Innovation funding is crucial to deliver the EU’s energy and climate objectives. To enable researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs generate fresh ideas, develop breakthrough technologies and create new business models, we are calling upon the European Union to increase R&I funding in the Horizon Europe budget to at least €120 billion, and to ensure a significant share of the budget is directed toward putting Europe on track to reach the Paris Agreement goals.

To reap the benefits of years of R&D and boost European companies exports, we also call upon the European Commission to develop lab-to-market programmes that enable innovative technologies to reach the commercial stage.
