Horizon Europe Trilogue Agreement

On 27 March 2019, the Council, the European Parliament and the Commission agreed, under the Romanian Presidency, on an "agreement" on the regulation as part of the trilogue negotiations. EU research ministers agreed in Brussels on a "general direction" for other outstanding issues regarding the proposal for the EU`s Ninth Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, which will run from 2021 to 2027. As a reminder, the European Commission`s next seven-year framework programme for research and development will succeed Horizon 2020 in 2021. This vote was the last step to reach agreement on legislative acts before the launch of Horizon Europe. After lengthy negotiations, the Council and the European Parliament reached a political agreement this afternoon on the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and the next recovery plan. It complements the overall financial package of €1,824.3 billion negotiated by the Council in July, which combines the MFF (€1,074.3 billion) and the next-generation EU (€750 billion). At its meeting today, the Permanent Representatives Committee (Coreper) prepared the formal confirmation by the Council of an agreement between the Council and the European Parliament on the content of the Horizon Europe Regulation. The agreement (Common Understanding) was reached during the last trilogue on 19 March 2018. The result of the Coreper meeting is that, at its meeting on 8 April 2019, the Council will confirm the agreement (common understanding) by one abstention and one vote against, which means a clear qualified majority. Confirmation of the agreement of the plenary of the European Parliament is expected on 3 April 2019.

Nevertheless, EU research ministers have reached agreement on other outstanding issues concerning Horizon Europe. On 29Th At the Competitiveness Council (Research and Innovation) of the Council of the European Union in Brussels on 27 September, EU research ministers focused on the following themes: EARTO welcomes this political agreement, especially as it drew attention to research and I, including Horizon Europe and EU4Health, and looks forward to the timely launch of the programmes. On 15 April 2019, the Council reached agreement on a "partial common approach" for the Specific Programme. The budget of the programme will only be definitively decided once agreement has been reached on the multiannual financial framework for the period 2021-2027. The Commission has proposed a total budget of €94.1 billion for the programme. The vote is one of the last steps needed to reach agreement on the legislative acts before its scheduled launch in January 2021. . .
