Video Missions in Horizon Europe
European research and innovation missions are portfolios of research and innovation actions aimed at delivering solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing our world. A mission gathers multiple stakeholders such as researchers, entrepreneurs and European citizens to work across disciplines and sectors on developing solutions to major challenges under one of the five mission areas: Adaptation to climate change, including societal transformation; Cancer; Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters ; Climate-neutral and smart cities; and Soil health and food.

This session focuses on Climate-neutral and smart cities. Olga Kordas, Program director Viable Cities and researcher at KTH, will talk about her involvement in the mission at a national level and what opportunities she thinks there might be for KTH researchers. 

13:00-14:00 European Innovation Council (EIC)

Video European Innovation Council (EIC)
European Innovation Council (EIC) is a new feature of Horizon Europe and will support researchers and innovators developing high-risk, breakthrough innovations with the potential to create new markets and boost jobs, growth and prosperity in Europe. It supports both research-intensive transdisciplinary projects (Pathfinder) and close-to-market mono-beneficiary projects (Accelerator).

This session focuses on the EIC Pathfinder that is open to researchers at universities and innovators from other sectors. Learn more about EIC from Vinnova and you will also hear from Michael Malkoch (KTH) on his successful proposal for project Bonefix (FET Open).
