Candidate European Partnerships

European Partnerships under Horizon Europe

European Partnerships under Horizon Europe are initiatives the bringing together EU and a wide range of public and/or private partners. Partners jointly support developing and implementing a common agenda for research and innovation activities. The partnership will coordinate, align, and leverage European and national R&I efforts.

An overview of European Partnerships in food, bioeconomy, natural resources, agriculture and environment can be found here. The SCAR is a key platform for co-creating four candidate partnerships in Cluster 6. The upcoming SCAR newsletters will explore these Partnerships further. Go to the European Partnership overview.
