While legislative negotiations on Horizon Europe are under way in the European Parliament and the EU Council, the proposal presented by the European Commission entrusts the Strategic Planning process with the definition and implementation of the most significant novelties of the next Framework Programme (i.e. intervention areas, R&I Missions, new EU R&I Partnerships, EIC).
The form that Horizon 2020’s existing instruments to support collaborative breakthrough S&T&D will take in Horizon Europe will be defined during the next months, even though the Commission’s proposal seems to be oriented towards a systemic deep-science, deep-tech, and deep-mind by putting in place self-contained innovation ecosystems. For the scientific community involved in this process, it is of outmost importance to understand which form the new S&T&D instruments will take, especially due to the shifting of future and emerging technologies schemes (I.E.; FET Open, FET Proactive) into the EIC Pathfinder and Accelerator in synergy with other ecosystems such as FET Flagships, EIT-KICs, JTIs and Missions. Such ecosystems will be called to bring deep-science, deeptech, and deep-mind into a systemic perspective.
Could the prospected tools and ecosystems under Horizon Europe (EIC, Pathfinder and Accelerator, EIT) move strategically forward the positioning of emerging technologies into a systemic perspective? How will innovation ecosystems contribute to such process? By bringing together in a high-level round table the most relevant representatives of the European S&T community and decision makers, we aim to explore possible options on how to systematically streamline collaborative breakthrough deep-science, deep-mind, deep-tech into a systemic innovation ecosystem cutting across the next Framework Programme for R&I (Horizon Europe).
