Horizon Europe

European Partnerships Health

European Partnerships should be established between the European Commission, Member States and associated countries, the private sector, foundations and other stakeholders to achieve, through a joint and targeted effort, global objectives, notably the Sustainable Development Goals.

Partnerships can be of three types: Co-Programmed, Co-Funded and Institutional.

Co-Programmed Partnerships

Based on Memoranda of Understanding and contractual arrange-ments between the European Commission and public or private part-ners; Independent implementation by partners and Horizon Europe.

Co-financed Partnerships

Based on a joint programme agreed and implemented by partners, which can be funding agencies from different Member States, public or private research entities, and other stakeholders; Commitment of partners to financial and in-kind contributions.

Institutional Partnerships

The Health area has eight partnerships, two institutional and six co-financed.
