HUB 5: EU Missions

Get involved!

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.

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.
