Horizon Europe Programme Guide Released

The European Commission has released the first version of a Horizon Europe Programme Guide on the Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal – Horizon Europe. The document provides detailed guidance and further explanations on the structure, budget and political priorities of Horizon Europe. It also includes details on how to prepare project proposals.

To this end, the Programme Guide also addresses the importance of outlining a solid Intellectual Property (IP) management strategy including potential protection measures and how these are envisaged to support the exploitation and valorisation of research results. In addition, particular attention is paid to issues related to the ownership of results and the IP associated with them.
This latest publication complements other information sources for applicants such as the Model Grant Agreement (including its Annexes), the General Annexes to the Work Programme or the Online Manual.
