Horizon Europe - WIDERA Info Day

12 December

Under Horizon Europe, the European Commission funds research and innovation projects to strengthen research and innovation across Europe.

Widening Participation and Spreading Excellence actions under Horizon Europe contribute to building research and innovation capacity of Member States, Associated Countries and Outermost Regions that underperform in terms of R&I performance.

The actions will strengthen countries’ potential for successful participation in transnational research and innovation projects, promote networking and access to excellence.

Participants in the programme will be able to upgrade their research and innovation systems, making them stronger and allowing the EU as a whole to advance together, in line with the policy objectives of the European Research Area.

REA implements six complementary actions: Teaming, Twinning (including Twinning Western Balkans), ERA Chairs, Excellence Hubs, the European Excellence Initiative (EEI), and the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST).

For additional information, please refer to the Widening Participation and Spreading Excellence page on the European Commission’s website.
