European Technology Platforms call for a more ambitious budget for Horizon Europe


European and National Technology Platforms representing the Agri & Aqua Food sector are very concerned about the reduction of the allocated budget to Horizon Europe, that was negotiated at teh eU summit from 17 to 21 July 2020.

In order to enable the goals of the EU Green Deal, research and innovation must be supported by an ambitious Horizon Europe budget. The European and National Technology Platforms believe a reduction in the Horizon Europe budget will greatly restrict the EU’s capacity to meet these goals. In a Joint Statement, we call on the EU institutions to protect and even extend the budget allocated to Horizon Europe.
