Horizon Europe is the Research and Innovation (R&I) Framework Programme of the European Union with a budget of €95.5 billion. It will run from 2021 to 2027. The work programmes of Horizon Europe for the period 2023-2024 outline the objectives and specific topic areas that will receive a total of €13.5 billion in funding.

The vast majority of this funding is allocated on the basis of competitive calls open to applications from researchers, businesses and other interested organisations located in any of the EU Member States or Associated Countries to Horizon Europe as well as partners from all over the world.

The Horizon Europe programme is open to the world. Institutions from third countries (including Latin American and Caribbean countries) can join most of Horizon Europe calls as part of a consortium comprised of:

Horizon Europe work programmes and calls 2023-2024 were published in December 2022 with a budget of around €13.5 billion to support researchers and innovators in Europe to pursue breakthrough solutions for environmental, energy, digital and geopolitical challenges

Euraxess LAC has prepared an indicative list of calls with international cooperation as priority. These particular calls may be calling for collaboration with the Latin American region or specific countries of the region, like Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.

Indicative calls of interest for Brazil and LAC

Eligibility to funding

Latin American and Caribbean institutions are fully eligible to funding from the European Commission, except institutions from Antigua y Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Panama, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Trinidad y Tobago and Uruguay.

LAC scientists eligible to researchers' mobility programmes (MSCA and ERC)

Short- and long-term mobility of researchers both ways is an important driver of the EU-LAC research and innovation cooperation.

Individual researchers from all Latin American and Caribbean States can take part in mobility programmes under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions scheme (MSCA). LAC researchers may also apply for the European Research Council (ERC) grants, which are for the most ambitious and highest quality researchers.

LAC individual researchers, including from Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Panama and Uruguay are fully eligible to funding under MSCA and ERC. They don't need co-funding. For more details read the Euraxess guides:
