The EU Horizon Europe programme: Funding opportunities for the meteorological and climate community – basic and application areas

The EU has recently adopted its new Framework Programme for Research & Innovation called Horizon Europe (HE) with a budget of 95 billion euros over 7 years (2021-2027). It includes many fundamental and application science areas where the meteorological and climate community at large can contribute to and benefit from funding.

The event will include an introduction by Dr. Adrian Broad (UK Met Office and EUMETNET) to the three pillars of HE, followed by more insights for our community into the most relevant clusters and connections with the important HE missions. This will include among others: climate systems and extreme weather; sustainable and intelligent transport systems in the air, on the road or seas; space weather and earth observation; renewable energy and agriculture sectors; the ocean and marine environment; heat waves and air pollution impact on health; technology and the digital economy; or safe systems for critical infrastructures. To conclude, links between HE and other relevant EU programmes will be made, focussing on Copernicus, Digital Europe and the Civil Protection Mechanism.

Afterwards, the floor will be open for questions from the audience.
