HUB 5: EU Missions
Inspired by the Apollo 11 moon landing, EU Missions are set to deliver solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing our world.
The five main mission areas are
- fighting cancer
- adapting to climate change
- living in greener cities
- ensuring soil health
- protecting our oceans
After an extensive citizen engagement project giving everyone a say, EU Missions were proposed within the five areas. Survey results, an open call for ideas and a number of public events have fed into the first draft proposals for EU Missions, which were revealed on Day 1 and discussed throughout the EU Research and Innovation Days.Discover more about EU missions

Mission-led thinking is a bold strategic approach, and it is encouraging that the European Commission has adopted this strategy in its five major research missions.
