Research commissioner sets out plans for 10 partnerships with industry, on areas including health

There will be only a “very narrow” gap between funding flows from the EU’s 2014-20 R&D programme, Horizon 2020, and its 2021-27 follow-up, Horizon Europe, the EU R&D commissioner has said. Her pledge came as the European Commission set out its plans for partnerships with industry in the latter programme.
