The European Commission has vowed to make the landscape of European Partnerships in Horizon Europe aims to be more strategic, simplified and impact-driven. Already in April the European Commission was set to publish the draft partnership proposals. Later on, the letters of commitments will be sent to national governments to gather the tentative commitments for contributions.
