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. Health is Cluster 1.

This page should give you all the information you need to have a comprehensive understanding of the Health Cluster.

Recording and slides now available for “Overview of Horizon Europe Health Cluster Webinar, 22nd March 2021.”

The Health Work Programme contains funding calls which focus on improving and maintaining a healthy life and the social inclusion of well-being for all people, whilst introducing innovative healthcare technology, and addressing new challenges such as Covid-19 and other diseases.

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