Scientists face communication challenges in Horizon Europe’s Pillar 2, but these can be overcome
Horizon Europe, the EU’s €95.5 billion, seven-year research funding framework, is one of the most important sources of money for scientists in Europe. But competition for funding is fierce, and sometimes the criteria for success can feel obscure.
This is especially true for Pillar 2, which tackles global challenges and European industrial competitiveness. There are six clusters, each tackling a different challenge set by the European Commission. For many researchers, it can be tough to find the link between the policies underpinning each cluster and their own work.
