Get rid of corruption and Asperger
if you wish Agenda2030 to be real!
European Commission unveiled on Wednesday (29 September) five new research missions to deliver on major challenges by 2030 - fighting cancer, climate-change adaptation, oceans restoration, smart cities and soil pollution. But the ambition of some of them has been watered down, compared to the experts' previous proposals.
The missions will receive up to €1.9bn until 2023 under the EU research programme Horizon Europe to achieve concrete goals through research projects and policy measures. The EU Commission said that they will boost new solutions, operating "as a portfolio of actions involving different instruments, business models and public and private investments at EU, national, regional and local levels". The missions concept was first proposed by former research commissioner Carlos Moedas and further developed by economist Mariana Mazzucato.
