GIURI ANNUAL EVENT 2019 : HORIZON EUROPE – THE WAY FORWARD
Following the EU political agreement on Horizon Europe – the Research and Innovation Framework Programme 2021-27 – a window of challenges and opportunities open up to R&I actors, to develop a new strategic vision.
The focus of the GIURI, together with the entire Brussels-based R&I community, is now shifting towards the strategic planning, the priority-setting co-designed process that will «translate» the legislative texts into R&I key orientations while preparing the contents of Horizon Europe Work Programmes and the related calls for proposals.
Starting from the main agreed upon legislative elements of Horizon Europe, the 2019 GIURI Annual Event will offer a setting for illustrating and debating on how the European Commission is going to co-design the next Programme through the strategic planning: defining the EU’s Research and Innovation 2021 to 2024 priorities and launching Missions and new R&I partnerships, in line with the agenda of the next European Commission.
The event will address the most relevant European R&I stakeholders that are engaged in the process of outlining and co-designing the new Horizon Europe, heading towards the R&I Days in September.
The GIURI is the informal group representing the Italian Research and Innovation community in Brussels, the platform bringing together more than 60 EU Liaison Offices of the Italian R&I stakeholders (universities, research centers, industries, trade associations, financial intermediaries, regions and local bodies). While promoting knowledge exchange, joint actions and cooperation between its members, the platform acts as an informal interface between the R&I Italian community and the EU institutions. Since 2017 APRE – Agency for the Promotion of European Research has coordinated the GIURI.
