Research and innovation EU Missions are a package of measures which aim to find several bold and inspiring solutions to the challenges we face nowadays in the European Union. Through research and innovation projects, combined with new ways to collaborate, and including a huge and active participation of citizenship, the goal is to raise the effectiveness of the funds and its implementation in society. These funds are part od Horizon Europe for the years 2021 to 2027 and point to achieve the objectives established for the European Green Deal, the Europe fit for the Digital Age, the Beating Cancer Plan, the New European Bauhaus and the Long-term Vision for the EU’s Rural Areas.
