Australia’s participation in Horizon Europe

June 21, 2024

The President of the Australian Academy of Science, Professor Chennupati Jagadish, said it would be a missed opportunity for Australia not to join Horizon Europe, the world’s largest funding program for research and innovation, valued at over ninety-five billion euros. 

“The global challenges we are facing require global solutions, requiring researchers and countries to work together. International scientific collaboration is a matter of strategic national interest and something Australia cannot do without," Professor Jagadish said. 

“Australia’s association with Horizon Europe would also assist in mitigating some of the current geopolitical risk in Australia’s scientific enterprise; and deliver scientific and economic benefits to Australia.”
