Introduction to the EU Partnerships
Types of partnership
EU partnerships deliver many opportunities for UK social sciences and humanities communities, such as to apply for calls for projects, to access active communities connecting you with the key stakeholders, to attend relevant training opportunities and more.
Horizon Europe indicates three types of EU Partnerships:
- Co-funded – These are partnerships involving EU countries, with research funders and other public authorities at the core of the consortium.
- Co-programmed – These are partnerships between the Commission and private and/or public partners. They are based on memoranda of understanding and/or contractual arrangements.
- Institutionalised – These are partnerships in the field of research and innovation between the Union, EU member states and/or industry.
The partnerships will run from 2021 to 2030 with funding of €8 billion.
The decision allows the Commission to work together with industry to boost investments in research and innovation and to overcome major climate and sustainability challenges, towards making Europe the first climate neutral economy and delivering on the European Green Deal.
The partnerships will also deliver on the EU’s digital ambitions for the next decade, Europe’s Digital Decade, in line with the goals of the ‘twin’ green and digital transitions.
