Timeline European Partnerships
The first wave of European Partnerships in HEU will start with the work programmes 2021/2022. The following indicative timeline shows the process of their implementation. It will be adopted according to the decisions on the MFF (multiannual financial framework), Horizon Europe negotiations and in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • March to June: Hearings of the Regulatory Scrutiny Board on the Draft Impact assessment of candidates for Article 185/7 initiatives;
  • May/June: online publication of draft partnership proposals for partnerships planned for 2021/2022. The publication of proposals will provide transparency of the preparation phase and therewith ensures better alignment and planning through mutual access among partnerships and Member States;
  • Autumn 2020: Adoption of COM proposals for Article 185/187 initiatives (timing depends on sufficient progress on MFF, the formal commitments received by Member States and the SRIAs/Roadmaps finalised).
  • Q1/2021: publication of Horizon Europe Work Programme 2021/2022 including co-programmed and co-funded European Partnerships
  • Q2/2021: adoption of Article 185 and 187 basic acts by (European Parliament and) Council.
Annual Report on Public-Public Partnerships 2019
ERA-LEARN has published its Annual Report on Public-Public Partnerships 2019. This report has been prepared by the ERA-LEARN project team using data provided by the P2P networks. In addition to providing an updated picture of the evolving P2P landscape, it highlights examples of good practice and achievements from networks during 2019 as they seek to address specific challenges and create wider impact within the community, in an increasingly collaborative manner.
Guide for developing Strategic Research and
Innovation Agendas (SRIA)

All future European Partnerships under Horizon Europe have to develop a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) or a Roadmap before their launch in order to ensure that the long-term vision is translated into concrete roadmaps with smart and measurable objectives.

ERA-LEARN elaborated an online-guide aiming to support partnerships in the process of developing SRIAs. The guide was established in collaboration with the European Commission and the valuable experience by existing networks. The guide is organised as a set of questions and answers related to the purpose, the content, and the development process of the SRIA.

New European Partnership on Pandemics
EU research Commissioner Mariya Gabriel stated that the Commission will be proposing a new European Partnership on pandemics in Horizon Europe. The proposal was subject to the Strategic Programme Committee meeting that took place on May 27th, 2020. The new partnership would increase the number of candidates for European Partnerships up to 50. Read more about the partnership on pandemics in the draft fiche.
