EU leaders will meet in Brussels from 20th-21st June 2019 to discuss, amongst other issues, the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF). In the light of this, EBC endorsed a recent statement, launched by the EU Health Coalition, that calls on the European Council to increase the total Horizon Europe budget to €120 billion. Such increase would be in line with the position of the European Parliament as well as the statement “Counting Down to Zero” that was launched by EBC during June 2018.
