Horizon Europe Cluster 6: Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

Posted on: 22.04.2021

Horizon Europe is the next European Funding Framework Programme following on from its predecessor Horizon 2020. It will run for seven years from 2021 to 2027. The total budget set for the programme is €95.5 billion. There are six Clusters under Pillar 2: Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness. Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment is Cluster 6.

This page should give you all the information you need to have a comprehensive understanding of the Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Cluster.

We recently recorded a video to give you an overview of the Five Horizon Europe Missions. You can watch it here.

This cluster aims at reducing environmental degradation, halting and reversing the decline of biodiversity on land, inland waters and sea, and better managing natural resources through transformative changes of the economy and society in both urban and rural areas.

We will publish links to each funding call as and when they are made available.
