Presidency Events on Horizon Europe


During the Austrian Presidency (July - December 2018), research ministers met three times – in July, in September and in November 2018 – at one informal and two formal meetings of the Council Competitiveness.

Other events during the Austrian Council Presidency invited participants to discuss issues regarding Horizon Europe, the 9th Framework Programme. These events ranged from  Marie Skłodowska Curie to Industrial Technologies, from Innovative Enterprise Week to the “Imagine Digital – Connect Europe” conference. The outcome of the events was carefully documented and made available to the team preparing and driving the negotiations in Brussels. Thus the RTI events in Austria supported the search for suitable solutions in the negotiations in Brussels, without, however, directly interfering in these negotiations.

In this section you can find links to all Austrian Presidency events focussing on Horizon Europe, as well as the documentation of their outcome.
