Participation of CERN in Horizon Europe

Based on the participation of CERN in the previous framework programmes, it is expected that Pillar I (Excellent Science) will be most interesting to CERN researchers, as well as the Health programme in Pillar II and the European Innovation Council in Pillar III. 

CERN was also involved in the EURATOM programme in Horizon2020 and it is expected that this will also be the case for Horizon Europe.
