. ‒ Last year, the Commission proposed the regulation on the new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – Horizon Europe. In less than three months, the Commission, the Council and Parliament reached an agreement. The content of the programme, as a result of the deal, perfectly reflects our priorities. Many important issues will be secured, such as the health cluster, culture, security, energy and climate, innovation and job qualifications. That is why I did not hesitate to express my support.Horizon Europe embodies our aspirations and values in many ways. First, it will fight against climate change, one of the most discussed topics nowadays. Second, the programme focuses on the importance of citizens’ quality of life. In this respect, research broad lines will be mainly dedicated to cancer, cardiovascular diseases and precision medicine, in order to improve citizens’ well-being and medical treatments. Finally, part of the programme aims at increasing gender equality, especially in the field of research and innovation, stimulating the integration of the gender dimension. I believe that all of these issues are currently significant and we need to cope with them as soon as possible.
