Lynn

 (absent) (+) . – Horizon Europe is the new framework programme for 2021-2027, designed for maximum impact in the context of the evolving nature of research and innovation, with an architecture designed for enhanced coherence and performance. It is based in three-pillar structure, with each pillar interconnected with the others and complemented by underpinning activities, to strengthen the European Research Area.
The Commission budget proposal is of 94 100 000 000 in current prices for the specific programme Horizon Europe with an addition for the Programme establishing the European Defence Fund.
For the reason of the increased budget and the money being spent on the European Defence Fund programme, I voted against the report.

 ABSTENTION (+) . ‒ Horizon Europe is the new framework programme for 2021-2027, designed for maximum impact in the context of the evolving nature of research and innovation, based on a three-pillar structure:
4. Open Science – strong continuity with Horizon 2020 in supporting excellent science, within a bottom-up approach;
5. Global Challenges and Industrial Competitiveness – progress societal challenges and industrial technologies in a more ‘top—down’ approach;
6. Open Innovation – focus on scaling up breakthrough and market-creating innovation by:
• Establishing a European Innovation Council;
• Supporting the enhancement of European innovation ecosystems;
• Continued support to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
The Commission budget proposal is for EUR 94.1 billion in current prices for the specific programme Horizon Europe with an addition for the programme establishing the European Defence Fund. That latter element did it for me. Despite the declaration to be published by the Commission in the OJ C series once the final text of this regulation is adopted, whereby: ‘In the Commission’s understanding the specific programme on defence research mentioned in Article 1(3)(b) is limited only to the research actions under the future European Defence Fund while the development actions are considered outside the scope of this Regulation’, I abstained.
