A snapshot at next EU funding at CERN - Q3 2022

The EU Projects Office has handpicked a selection of interesting Horizon Europe calls for CERN

05 September, 2022


Several Horizon Europe 2021-2022 calls have been identified by CERN’s EU Projects Office as of potential interest for the organisation. In order to give you a flavour of what’s in there for you, the Office has handpicked a selection of interesting ones for 2022 as outlined below. The Horizon Europe 2023-2024 calls will be released at the end of the year.

From quantum-resistant cryptography to advanced robotics, from two-dimensional materials to extreme data mining, the highlighted calls carry opportunities for CERN, for your research and for your career. Furthermore, they display the full diversity of what can be the purpose of an EU project: fundamental research of course, but also societal applications and market opportunities.  

If your research topic is not covered in the table below,  

  • check the full list curated by the CERN’s EU Projects Office here
  • and/or browse the European Commission portal for an overview of all the calls.  

Applying to a call is a specific art to achieve success and for this reason, the Office has set up a training to help CERN personnel understand what is an EU Project, how they work and, more especially, how to apply to one. This training also provides information about the structure, content and novelties of Horizon Europe, the new EU framework programme for research and innovation.
