Call for ideas for EU Missions

The EU Commission developing innovation missions to increase the effectiveness of funding by pursuing clearly defined targets. There are five mission areas, each with a dedicated mission board and assembly to help specify, design and implement them for launch under Horizon Europe in 2021:

  • Adaptation to climate change including societal transformation
  • Cancer
  • Climate-neutral and smart cities
  • Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters
  • Soil health and food

The Commission is running a call for ideas that closes on 14th September - click here for details.  The call is an additional initiative to collect citizens’ input for the European Commission and Mission Board's considerations on missions by the end of 2020.

The call is led by Ireland’s LIFE contact point at Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment.
