The advent of 2030 means that Brussels is aiming to find innovative solutions to current problems through five tasks to improve Europeans’ lives.
Brussels (European News Agency).- The European Commission launched a plan on Wednesday to address the major challenges that will mark the EU’s future in the field of climate, environment and health. The plan’s budget for the next two years is 1.9 billion euros.
With the advent of 2030, Brussels hopes to promote innovative solutions to meet current challenges through five tasks to improve the lives of Europeans. The identified areas of work are adaptation to climate change and the idea of having resilient communities; fighting cancer, especially the prevention and treatment of problems; restoring oceans and waters; realizing green and smart cities; and agreements to improve soils.
These tasks, which will involve R&D and innovation as well as citizen participation, will be developed on the fringes of the European Horizon Research Program. The current European budget has raised the funding to the program to 95.5 billion euro over the next six-years.
Innovation commissioner Mariya Gabriel said that the coronavirus crisis shows that “only collective efforts” can solve major problems.
The Bulgarian Commissioner praised these delegations for mobilizing “the great potential of the European Union” and coordinating policies and tools across Europe, with a focus on specific targets for 2030.
