Many global challenges may be tackled by technology and innovation. No one understands this more than the European Commission. For this reason, Horizon-Europe is focusing on a broad range of topics dealing with worldwide issues. This ambitious new proposal has allocated over 90 billion Euros to tackle global challenges such as:
· Adaptation to climate change including societal transformation
· Climate-neutral and smart cities
· Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters
· Soil health and food
These ambitious missions are the main points of focus for Horizon-Europe. The long term goal is to transform the world of sustainability to a viable and profitable industry. The European Innovation Council provides support to innovative companies that are too risky for private investors. This allows innovators to focus on what’s important, innovation!
