The missions will be part of Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027).
Catia Bastioli, CEO of Novamont, has been selected as a member of the Mission Board for Soil Health and Food. The other boards will identify specific missions on cancer, climate change, healthy oceans and climate-neutral cities.
Over 2100 individuals from across the EU and beyond applied to become member of a mission board. The selection process ensured that the boards are composed of 15 experts from a wide range of backgrounds, including academics, innovators, civil society, industry, finance and end-users.
A first discussion with citizens, stakeholders and experts from Member States will take place at the European Research and Innovation Days in Brussels from 24 to 26 September.
