Partial political agreement on Horizon Europe
The EU institutions have reached a partial political agreement on Horizon Europe.
The preliminary political agreement reached by the European Parliament, Council and Commission is now subject to formal approval by the European Parliament and Council. Horizon Europe's budgetary aspects are subject to the overall agreement on the EU's next long-term budget, proposed by the Commission in May 2018.
Synergies with other future EU programmes and policies are still subject to further discussions depending on the progress made with other sectoral proposals within the EU's long-term budget. Provisions on international association agreements are also subject to further discussions.
The Commission will now start preparing Horizon Europe's implementation in order to have the first draft work programmes published in time for the programme's launch on 1 January 2021.
