  • Express views on Horizon Europe (2021-2027) design and implementation up until now;
  • Identify future priorities for Horizon Europe’s Strategic Plan 2025-2027, providing inputs on emerging research and innovation needs, on synergies across EU programmes, etc.

Stakeholders are encouraged to reply to multiple-choice and open questions and are invited to submit position papers. Respondents can choose to reply to one, two or all three parts of the questionnaire.
The consultation will close in February 2023.
