About the survey

Horizon Europe, the ninth European Research and Innovation Framework programme (2021-2027), is the key instrument of the Union for supporting research and innovation. It also plays an important role in steering and accelerating Europe’s recovery, preparedness and resilience along the twin digital and green transitions. It will strengthen our knowledge base through frontier research, spur breakthrough innovation and support the development and demonstration of innovative solutions, and it will help restore our industrial leadership and strategic autonomy, while helping tackle the coronavirus pandemic and the climate challenges.

The first Horizon Europe Strategic Plan will define the strategic orientations for our research and innovation investments over the period 2021-2024 and will act as a compass to stay on course with the political priorities of the Commission: a climate-neutral and green Europe, fit for the digital age, where the economy works for the people.

This survey is part of the strategic planning process, to which the European Parliament, EU Member States, Countries of the European Economic Area (EEA Countries), as well as stakeholders and interested citizens, contribute collectively.

The objective of this survey is to receive feedback on the expected impacts to be targeted by research and innovation within Horizon Europe and the contribution of Research and Innovation (R&I) investments to the EU’s political priorities. The results of the survey will be used to finalise the Strategic Plan and to precise the impact logic, which will set the direction for to the future Horizon Europe work programmes.

The survey is structured around six Horizon Europe clusters and their expected impacts: 1. Health; 2. Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society; 3. Civil Security for Society; 4. Digital, Industry and Space; 5. Climate, Energy and Mobility; 6. Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment.

You do not have to respond to all six clusters. It should take about 20 minutes to reply to the questions for each cluster. The deadline is Friday, 18 September 2020, 18.00 Brussels time
