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.
