Horizon Europe has replaced Horizon 2020 and will run from 1 January 2021 until 31 December 2027. The framework programme has a total budget of approximately EUR 96 billion.  Horizon Europe consists of three pillars: “Excellent Science”, ”Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness” and “Innovative Europe”, which contain several different sub-programmes and types of grant (Funding Schemes).
