The Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation have played a critical role in shaping the future of science, technology, and industry in Europe. FP9, also known as Horizon Europe, has provided valuable insights into the importance of industry-led pan-European collaborative research efforts and funding for the European industry and research community. Now, as we look ahead to the much-anticipated FP10, it is essential to reflect on the past and look forward to what the future holds. During the event, there will be discussions on lessons learnt from the design and implementation of Horizon Europe, as well as on perspectives towards FP10.
