Open horizon Europe calls for Climate-Health

The recently adopted Horizon Europe Work Programme 2023-2024 includes calls for Research & Innovation activities, co-funded partnerships (COFUND) and Coordination and Support Actions (CSAs). The Health cluster is divided into six Destinations, focusing on a broad range of areas of importance for the future of health. Several clusters have open calls that are relevant for the climate-health nexus.
