Appointment of mission boards sparks excitement for members

The people who will advise the European Commission on potential missions for the EU’s next R&D programme have been announced, with several expressing their happiness at being picked and their eagerness to get to work.

The Commission announced the members of the mission advisory boards for the 2021-27 Horizon Europe programme on 30 July. Missions are being introduced to increase the programme’s impact and public support, with potential missions on cancer, climate change, healthy oceans, climate-neutral cities and healthy soil and food set to receive funding.

“I am confident that these first-rate experts will help [with] making missions a success, inspiring citizens and showing them what Europe, and research and innovation, can do about the issues that matter most to them,” research commissioner Carlos Moedas said.
