Extra time needed for Horizon Europe negotiations

EU negotiators on the legislation for the 2021-27 R&D programme Horizon Europe have been forced to schedule an extra session to try to resolve their differences before their way is blocked by the European election in May.

Negotiators for the European Parliament, European Commission and national governments in the Council of the EU failed to resolve all of their disagreements on the setup of Horizon Europe in their fifth trilogue session on 14 March. An extra sixth session has now been arranged for 19 March.
