The European Commission and the New Zealand government have concluded negotiations in Wellington for New Zealand's affiliation with the Horizon Europe programme, which will strengthen bilateral scientific cooperation, according to the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment.

Horizon Europe is the European Union's (EU) primary research and innovation funding initiative, with a budget of 95.5 billion euros (101.45 billion U.S. dollars). Combating climate change contributes to the achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals while also increasing the EU's competitiveness and growth.

The signing of the association agreement is scheduled for 2023, subject to the completion of all necessary validations on both sides.

New Zealand researchers and organisations will be eligible to participate in Pillar II of the Horizon Europe programme beginning in 2023, which is largely focused on shared global concerns in climate, energy, mobility, digital, industry, space, health, and other areas.
