Israel and Georgia join Horizon Europe

In the first week of December, both Georgia and Israel formally associated to Horizon Europe, the EU’s €95.5 billion research and innovation programme for the 2021-2027 period. The two countries’ innovators and researchers can now participate in the programme on equal terms with the EU’s Member States. 

Georgia previously participated in Horizon, joining the 2014-2020 iteration of the programme back in 2016. Israel has been a participant of EU Framework programmes in research and innovation for over two decades, first joining in 1996, and ranked third in overall participation amongst associated/third countries in Horizon 2020. 

Associations of third countries to these programmes are part of the EU’s commitment to a ‘Global Approach to Research and Innovation’, which recognises the need for international collaboration to drive excellence in the field of R&I.
