Research and innovation

Research and innovation plays a crucial role in ensuring the EU evolves to meet the challenges it faces while continuing to deliver on its policy objectives.

EU agricultural research and innovation is guided by a long-term strategic approach that focuses on creating value from land through sustainable primary production, and enhancing rural innovation. It is a vital tool in the fight against issues like climate change, environmental degradation and loss of biodiversity.

Horizon Europe strengthens the impact of EU research and innovation, supporting and implementing EU policies while tackling global challenges.

EU Missions will support Europe’s transformation into a greener, healthier, more inclusive and more resilient continent.

The EU’s ‘Digital Decade’ will empower people and businesses in a human-centred, sustainable and prosperous digital future.
