The impact-oriented approach of Horizon Europe serves ambitious goals relevant to society, based on the idea that "our common future will depend on how successfully we work together to create valuable research and innovation". The workshop contributes to the Horizon Europe strategic planning co-design of priorities for the first four years of Horizon Europe. It invites policy makers and regional stakeholders to exchange ideas and experiences about the participatory agenda setting in the future European research and innovation ecosystem. It will enhance the understanding and future implementation of missions and new partnerships, in terms that are truly responsive to the expectations and needs of Europe. Panellists and participants will discuss the novelties of Horizon Europe and provide inputs on the strategic orientations for research and innovation support.
