One of sustainability's biggest paradoxes is the cities of Europe that energise me as a tourist seem so civilised but history shows Europe hosted 2 world wars and Putins Euro of 2022 may be no safer than Stalin's or Hitler's 1920's E. At we wonder if you could time machine to one year in E-history what year would you choose and what report for humanity would you search for? WHAT GOOD CAN PEOPLES UNITE IF THEY HAVE FIRST ACCESS TO 100 TIMES MORE TECH PER DECADE? Back in 1951 my father found this biggest scoop of his life at It was given to him by Hungarian-American John Von Neumann at Princeton
2006: In dads last 2 years age 84 he hosted a 40 person debate at Royal Automobile Club, a few minutes walk from the Royal Palaces - if the greatest human development advance of his lifetime since meeting Von Neumann was networked by a 1billiongirls (Asian Village mothers 2020-1970) - did anyone in the west or at The UN really know how they did this? 16 journeys to Bangladesh by Graduate Journalists has chalked up 2 resources & where both women empowerment luminaries requested we open learning networkers interpret C for Cooperation (not C for Certification) . We enjoyed more than a little help from many people such as Japan's Ambassador. As Diarists out of St James and alumni of Brother James Wilson have recorded: The UK Royal family left most of the human development of two thirds of beings in Asia to Prince Charles. As a 16 year old he had been assigned the duty to attend the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. 3 happy-good natured seeds were planted from that day on - good relations between Japan Empire and some of Europe's Royals; Sony as Japan's first inward investment in Europe; the birth of whether worldwide sports celebrities are tele2's blessing or a curse as next generations greatest heroines (Tokyo was the first satellite broadcast to a global audience). What if it turns out that in the 21st C European royals value sustainability of millennials more than soundbitimg politicians or professional bureaucrats whose Intel rules have no mathematical or human transparency. This strangely unpopular question is the purpose of events diaries by and education's 3ed co-creative revolution - thanks Glasgow University Union for marking up one of 2023's main QOH events 265th Smithian Moral Sentiments . If you have an event for our diaries to cooperate around please mail me It may be that us far north diaspora scots are more interdependent on you all Europeans than anyone apart from whomever angry nature or angry purtins hurt next??. Sample some Future History Good/bad News Reports? ...1955 report what was Messina (birthing EU) for? 1945 report what was british language world service for?; 2022-1945 what was UN & ITU for; dad. The economist's norman macrae, spent his last days as teen navigating air planes bomber command burma; he tried his best at reparation ever since- wind assisted, so to speak, by the most valuable question media men were ever given - von neumann 1951 asked dad: to ask anyone/everyone what goods will peoples do with 100 times more uniting tech every decade to 2020s? In 1951, VN had 6 years left working on good (ie way above zero sum human development exchages) after the Goats of maths (including einstein turing ..) had spent moist of their life on the bad on nuclear arms racing. They had a reason to defeat hitler. I am no genius (just a listener who ,oves transparent maps/maths) ---but can anyone tell me why are we currently using nuclear races to defaeal all 8 billion of our beings.

"Two years ago to date, in the evening of February the twenty third, I was leaving Kyiv which was getting ready to repel the Russian aggression. Just hours later, first bombs were dropped on the Ukrainian capital and Vladimir Putin`s troops launched a full–scale war against an independent Ukraine. A brutal war which is unfortunately going on until this day," Duda said.

"And that is what happened," he added. "Poland has been supporting the fighting Ukraine right from the start. I am truly proud to recall the attitude of millions of Poles who, starting from the first hours of the war, opened up their hearts and homes for our neighbours who were fleeing the tragedy of the war."

He noted that Poland has been trying to set up "the broadest possible international coalition of support for Ukraine and to impose harsh sanctions on Russia". "Poland transferred its own armaments which helped the Ukrainian army stop the Russian onslaught. More than three hundred tanks, guns howitzers, armored vehicles, and last but not least, our planes. We did it at a time when it was most needed, when not everyone was willing to provide such support."

"We supported, we are supporting and we will continue to support Ukraine in its fight for freedom! This support is still critically needed today. Irrespective of the war fatigue. The free world may not let Putin and Russia triumph. Should that happen, we will face another war, sooner or later," the Polish president stressed.

In his view, "Europe should learn lessons from history". "Including the contemporary history. If back in 2008, at the NATO Summit in Bucharest, the United States had been listened to, if Poland and other Central–European countries had been listened to, if the attitude of not teasing Russia had not prevailed, Ukraine would be a member of NATO today. This war would not be fought! This should be a big remorse for some NATO member states," Duda underscored.

According to the Polish leader, war in Ukraine "demonstrated the importance of the role of NATO, the importance of the presence of US troops in Poland and in Europe". "The United States is and should remain the leader of security in Europe and across the world."

"However, other NATO members also have to take a bigger share of responsibility for the security of the whole Alliance. They need to intensively modernize and boost their Armed Forces. This is what Poland has been doing for quite a while. We are currently allocating over 4% of GDP for the modernization of our army. For we know that security has a very well–defined, huge price to pay! If we want a safe Europe for future generations, we have to act. We have to act now!" - president Duda urged.

Horizon Europe funding

Funding for research or innovation that's ground breaking, improves European research standards or responds to challenges like climate change or food security.

Department for Science, Innovation & Technology

We are delighted that on the 4 December 2023 the UK and EU have signed our bespoke new agreement finalising the UK’s association to Horizon Europe and Copernicus.

UK researchers can now bid into Horizon, certain that all successful UK applicants will be covered through the UK’s association (or through the guarantee) for the remainder of the programme.

All calls in Work Programme 2024 will be covered by association and the UK guarantee scheme will be extended to cover all calls under Work Programme 2023.

For more information, please read:

Who it’s for

Horizon Europe is open to all types of organisations across Europe and the world. Horizon Europe provides funding for research and innovation across three core pillars:

Pillar 1 – Excellent Science

Pillar 2 – Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness

Pillar 3 – Innovative Europe

Some funding calls allow a single organisation to apply but many require a team of partner organisations to form a consortium. Usually, the consortium must be made up of at least 3 organisations from different countries.

Get in touch with your UK national contact point for advice on:

  • how to apply for Horizon Europe funding
  • how to form a consortium

What you can get funding for

You may be able to get Horizon Europe funding for projects which:

  • involve groundbreaking research or new technologies
  • improve research training and development, or research infrastructure
  • create growth in sectors like advanced manufacturing, materials, biotechnology, information and communication technology, nanotechnology and space
  • increase private investment in research
  • respond to challenges like climate change, food security, or healthcare for an aging population

Further advice and guidance on applying to Horizon Europe can be found here
