Impact goals for Horizon Europe

How to increase the social benefit of European research funding? Members of the ASTP’s National Associations’ Advisory Committee (NAAC) recently met representatives of the European Commission (EC) in Brussels to discuss this question.

At a time when the EC is constructing its goals beyond Horizon 2020 towards Horizon Europe, the meeting was a significant opportunity for the EC to learn from the knowledge transfer community – and for the NAAC to present its proposal on how to increase the impact of European research funding.

The recommendations are:

  • The introduction of a dedicated work package to address the impact of Horizon Europe projects and take care of the knowledge transfer, including translation into the innovation phase towards society and the market
  • To ensure the involvement of Knowledge Transfer Offices (KTOs) in the project to lead this work package
  • The assignment of additional budget for this work package
