Gist of the Commission documents:

This proposal is part of the legislative package for the ‘Horizon Europe’ Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. It is designed to implement the EU’s next multiannual financial framework (MFF) for 2021-2027, the priorities set out in the Commission's Agenda for Jobs, Growth, Fairness and Democratic Change, and the Commission’s overall policy priorities (Horizon Europe). The proposal for the Euratom research and training programme deals with the key issue of the various applications of nuclear energy in Europe.

In this proposal, the Commission seeks the Council’s agreement to a five-year programme which will pursue the current programme’s key research activities, expand research into non-power applications of ionising radiation, and make improvements in the areas of education, training and access to research infrastructure. The proposal determines the budget and a common set of research objectives for both direct and indirect actions to be implemented in accordance with the work programmes agreed with Member States.
