Horizon Europe Widening Participation
At RISE, our commitment lies in addressing the significant disparity in research funding between Western member states and Widening countries. The current landscape exposes limited progress and a substantial gap in the participation of Widening countries in relevant EU programmes. The findings underscore the crucial need to boost the number of applications, establish stronger leadership roles for Widening partners, and provide targeted support to enhance their participation in Horizon Europe projects.
We recognize the utmost importance of creating equal opportunities and fostering collaboration across Europe's diverse research and innovation landscape. Through our comprehensive range of services, we actively contribute to narrowing the gap and empowering Widening countries to thrive within Horizon Europe.
By tackling these critical aspects head-on, we work hand-in-hand with our partners to co-create solutions that bridge the research divide and foster a more inclusive and collaborative research and innovation ecosystem.
