In the last weeks, the eyes of the R&I community were all on Horizon Europe as the European Research and Innovation Days were held in Brussels. We were present there on September 24-26 and closely followed the sessions, bringing back the insights on strategic and practical planning of Horizon Europe.
We will share these as well as our own analysis of lessons learned during H2020 and changes planned within the next R&I Programme in our brand-new course Horizon Europe: a practical insight to be held on November 5-6 in Budapest.
If you need more help with upcoming calls and ongoing projects, we have you covered as well – we still have a few spots left for our European Funding Academy planned for next week in Budapest and Master of Finance and Administration and EC Audits course to be organized in Amsterdam in November.

Its participants also agreed that the structure and priorities for the first years of Horizon Europe, are well defined to support this ambition.

A new opinion from the European Commission’s Chief Scientific Advisors recommends a number of changes in scientific advisory processes and proposes that these are formalised in a Code of Practice.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has today issued its Special Report on the impact of climate change on oceans and the cryosphere – the frozen parts of our planet. The report provides policy-makers across the globe with a strong scientific basis for their efforts to modernise the economy, tackle climate change and other issues.
