New Zealand to join Horizon Europe

Scientists in New Zealand will be able to access EU research funding from next year as the country has successfully secured association to Horizon Europe.

This is the first time a “highly industrialised” country outside of Europe has joined the EU’s flagship research and innovation program, the European Commission said following the conclusion of negotiations earlier this week.  

Researchers in New Zealand will be limited to participating in Pillar II of Horizon, which focuses on shared global challenges, including climate, energy and health.
