About the event

EU   Missions are a new approach of European Commission aiming at bringing   concrete solutions to some of global greatest challenges, with the ambitious   goals to deliver concrete results by 2030 and supporting Commission   priorities, such as the European Green Deal, Europe fit for the Digital Age,   Beating Cancer and the New European Bauhaus.

EU   Missions, as a novelty of the Horizon Europe research and innovation   programme for the years 2021-2027, wants to deliver impact by putting   research and innovation into a new role, combined with new forms of   governance and collaboration, as well as by engaging citizens.

EU   Missions are a coordinated effort by the Commission to pool the necessary   resources in terms of funding programmes, policies and regulations, as well   as other activities. They also aim to mobilise and activate public and   private actors, such as EU Member States, regional and local authorities,   research institutes, farmers and land managers, entrepreneurs and investors   to create real and lasting impact. Missions will engage with citizens to   boost societal uptake of new solutions and approaches.

Furthermore,   in 2022, additional horizontal actions will be programmed to ensure   coordination and synergies across the five missions. In order to help   Missions to achieve their objectives, and to promote synergies across their   activities and constituencies, a European Social Catalyst fund will be set up   to support the dissemination of Missions activities, through the replication   of successful social innovations.

Given   the adoption of the Commission Communication on the Missions, and therefore   their official launch, on Wednesday, 29 September we have organized this   webinar with the aim of better understanding the state of the art of the   Missions and their implementation strategy and governance, the webinar   provides us the opportunity to have a clear picture also of one of the five   mission: Mission Cancer.
