Technology-transfer 33: Horizon Europe in a nutshell: EU-Japan collaborations & IP implications

31-01-20 | 10:00 h - 11:30 h

Horizon Europe is a planned 7-year European Union scientific research initiative meant to succeed the current Horizon 2020 program. The European Commission drafted and approved a plan for the Horizon Europe to raise EU science spending levels by 50% over the years 2021-2027.

As of April 2019 the Commission proposes €94.1 billion for Horizon Europe – due to launch in 2021 – up from €77 billion for the current Horizon 2020. The Japanese government might budget about €10 million a year for greater scientific cooperation with the European Union on climate, agriculture, artificial intelligence and other strategic areas, according to Japan’s vice minister for innovation policy.
