Deadline: 23-Sep-21

The European Commission is calling for proposals for the Implementation of a New Macro-Economic Modelling Concept.
Horizon Europe has a new level of ambition – to maximise the impact of EU research and innovation funding for European science, economy and the wider society.

It marks a paradigm change in the design of the EU R&I Framework Programmes (FP) from an activity-driven to an impact-driven programme.

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates the importance of R&I cooperation to deliver solutions to society’s most demanding needs. Delivering Europe’s recovery is a priority as are the green and digital twin transitions.

To match these challenges, a new level of ambition that links better R&I with the economy, as well as with education and training, is necessary to put the EU’s scientific knowledge to work.

The new ERA calls for deepening existing priorities and initiatives through new and stronger approaches. The green and digital transitions and the recovery call for cooperation between the Commission and the Member States.

They require the setting of new priorities, launching ambitious joint initiatives and developing common approaches between policies.

  • This action will operationalise the recommendations of the “Expert Group to advise on further development of the macro-economic modelling agenda” run during the period 2019-2020, which can be found in the report of the Group.
  • Based on these, it will implement a renovated macro-economic modelling concept to improve the treatment of R&I and R&I policies in macroeconomic models, by developing a modelling framework consistent with the most recent empirical evidence and the theoretical state of the art.

Funding Information
Grant amount is equal to or greater than EUR 500 000 except for:

Expected Outcomes

  • Project results are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes:
  • Better integration of research and innovation activities in macro-economic models, leading to better measurement of their impact and a better understanding of the channels through which research and innovation lead to impact (direct and indirect) in Europe.
  • Improved macro-economic modelling for the evaluation of R&I policy, at the different levels of policy intervention (EU, national, regional), and reinforced alignment between the development of models and policy use, for example in the context of assessing policy options.
  • Reinforcement of the scientific community focused on the role of research and innovation in the EU economy based on macro-economic models and increased interactions between this community and policy makers in charge of R&I policy in Europe.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Any legal entity, regardless of its place of establishment, including legal entities from non-associated third countries or international organisations (including international European research organisations) is eligible to participate (whether it is eligible for funding or not), provided that the conditions laid down in the Horizon Europe Regulation have been met, along with any other conditions laid down in the specific call topic.
  • A ‘legal entity’ means any natural or legal person created and recognised as such under national law, EU law or international law, which has legal personality and which may, acting in its own name, exercise rights and be subject to obligations, or an entity without legal personality.
