Leading legislator on Horizon Europe sets out his vision for the programme
A draft report by MEP Christian Ehler calls for an increase in the Horizon Europe research programme budget from €94.1 to €120 billion and for more flesh to be put on the proposal, which has been criticised by member states as not adequately developed.
Ehler is one of two lead rapporteurs responsible for steering the European Commission’s proposal for Horizon Europe through Parliament. The other is Romanian MEP Dan Nica, who is expected to present his own report on simplifying EU research programmes. Both MEPs sit on the Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy.
