The programme facilitates collaboration and strengthens the impact of research and innovation in developing, supporting and implementing EU policies while tackling global challenges. It supports creating and better dispersing of excellent knowledge and technologies.

It creates jobs, fully engages the EU’s talent pool, boosts economic growth, promotes industrial competitiveness and optimises investment impact within a strengthened European Research Area.

Legal entities from the EU and associated countries can participate.

European Innovation Council: Support for innovations with potential breakthrough and disruptive nature with scale-up potential that may be too risky for private investors. This is 70% of the budget earmarked for SMEs.

Missions: Sets of measures to achieve bold, inspirational and measurable goals within a set timeframe. There are 5 main mission areas as part of Horizon Europe.

Open science policy: Mandatory open access to publications and open science principles are applied throughout the programme Factsheet: Open science in Horizon Europe

New approach to partnerships: Objective-driven and more ambitious partnerships with industry in support of EU policy objectives

  • !Important notice! - the main applicant must have already finished their PhD in order to be co-applicant. Best scenario is when a consortium of University partners is made and Faculty of Education is selected as a co-applicant in the research proposal. All applicant must forward the Faculty grant form to and have it signed by the department head before applying to the EC Europa portal. Investment costs are not elligable costs at PedF CUNI.

  • Notice for researchers with ongoing projects. The head researcher has to input the supervisor / supervisor into the grant proposal, where according to the rules of HEUROPE, funding on the basis of DPP or rewards can be granted as a form of payment to the supervisor. In total, worload of 1.2 must not be bridged at the faculty - if your supervisor, for example, is the guarantor of the program, he / she cannot have less than 1.0 workload per contract. The rules stipulate that the university / faculty employee may not have more than 1 week. Therefore, the supervisor cannot be paid remuneration on the basis of agreements (DPP / DPČ). In such cases, please select the remuneration in the form of rewards. It is therefore recommended that faculty staff in the role of supervisor always have a reward in the project proposal, not an agreement. This is set by the head researcher / applicant in the project proposal in the webapps application. The provision of grant funding is governed by the HEUROPE Guidelines.
