What’s on the Horizon? Framing the next 40 years of European R&I

Join us at our Public Annual Network Conference as we mark the 40th anniversary of the EU’s first Framework Programme for research.

  • Future of Framework Programmes: Exploring the evolution of the Framework Programme in its 10th edition.
  • Investment for Global Leadership: Assessing Europe’s commitment to remain a leader in critical technology domains.
  • Policy and Innovation: Can policy keep pace with breakthrough science to drive innovation in industrial R&D ecosystems?
  • Long-Term Vision: Envisioning the world in 40 years and the role of science and tech in ensuring a safe, clean, and healthy planet.
  • Geopolitical Collaboration: Navigating current geopolitical trends to ensure global cooperation in Research and Innovation.

Stay tuned for more details as the programme evolves.
