European Parliament adopts partial agreement on Horizon Europe
On 17 April 2019, the European Parliament endorsed the provisional agreement reached by the co-legislators on Horizon Europe. The partial agreement was approved with almost 90% of the votes of all MEPs in the plenary. After this vote, the European Commission will start preparing the Strategic Plan, setting up the Mission Boards and the Partnership Initiatives, so that as of January 2021 the new Horizon Europe programme can be fully operational.
The budgetary aspects and some related horizontal provisions such as international association to the Horizon Europe programme are subject to the overall agreement on the EU's next long-term budget.TOP
