New version of the orientation paper on the first Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe
On 31 October 2019, the European Commission has published a new version of the orientation paper on the Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe. The document contains ideas for the first Strategic Plan for the next Framework Programme, including descriptions of planned clusters and a list of proposed partnerships.
The original version of the document was published in June 2019 with the start of the public consultation on the Strategic Plan. This consultation is now closed and its results, as well as those of the European Research and Innovation Days in September 2019, were published in a report. The updated version of the orientation paper also takes into account these results. The changes compared to the first version of the paper are mainly content-related additions and reformulations of the texts.
Together with the publication of the new version of the document, the European Commission has launched another online consultation on the Strategic Plan. This is particularly aimed at so-called "umbrella organisations" - cross-border organisations or networks with a focus on research and innovation. The current consultation is open until 17 November 2019.
