Digitalisation: Virtually everywhere?

12th August 2021 at 4:07 pm

Every aspect of our lives appears to be dominated by digitalisation. We have computers at work and at home, and computers are in our pockets – smartphones with social media and many apps. Digitalisation controls traffic lights and many facets of mobility. It is in our houses and all places where we consume energy. Healthcare systems are digitalised to deliver patient care. Digitalisation is indeed everywhere! How is this represented in Horizon Europe?

For the fifth industrial revolution to thrive, where humans and machines are combined and artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly adopted and applied, research and innovation are required at the national, European, and global level.

The EU has defined digital strategies in several policy documents, including in its Shaping Europe’s Digital Future priority announcement, Artificial Intelligence white paper, Digital Decade target setting and Space Strategy for Europe communication. Following these, Horizon Europe, the EU`s largest framework programme for research and innovation ever, facilitates the digitalisation process by supporting the discovery and development of innovative ICT technologies and their deployment in a wide range of application areas, such as in Health (Cluster 1) for personalised medicine and in Climate, Energy and Mobility (Cluster 5) for smart, individual solutions.

Although digitalisation is clearly a cross-cutting activity, there is one dedicated sub-programme in Horizon Europe that is focused on Digital, Industry and Space (Cluster 4). Having had a closer look at the two-year work programme for Cluster 4 (2021/2022), the European Commission has defined 6 destination areas under which more than 200 initiatives will be funded in a total of 84 call topics with € 2.9 billion. Researchers, companies, and other organisations can apply for grants, non-repayable funding, to progress in digital and industrial technologies to shape all sectors of the economy and society.

The Horizon Europe Cluster 4 programme offers over 80 call topics in 2021 alone for research and innovation in digitalisation. The table below shows the key facts and the anticipated number of funded projects.
