A new way to bring concrete solutions to some of the EU greatest challenges with ambitious goals to deliver concrete results by 2030.
- EU Missions will deliver impact by putting research and innovation into a new role in combination with new forms of governance and collaboration, as well as citizen engagement.
- EU Missions are a coordinated effort by the Commission to pool the necessary resources in terms of funding programmes, policies and regulations, as well as other activities. They aim to mobilise and activate public and private actors, such as EU Member States, regional and local authorities, research institutes, farmers and land managers, entrepreneurs and investors to create a real and lasting impact.
- EU Missions will support Europe’s transformation into a greener, healthier, more inclusive and resilient continent.
