The first monitoring report of the Horizon Europe partnerships


The report will serve as a guide for the implementation of partnerships and for measuring progress.

On 16 May, the European Commission released its first report on the ‘Performance of the European Partnerships: Biennial Monitoring Report 2022 on Partnerships under Horizon Europe’ (BMR 2022). The aim of the report is to provide a strong evidence base to guide the implementation of partnerships and to inform strategic discussions on the effectiveness of the new policy approach to European Partnerships and, where relevant, how it should evolve. The report aims to shed light on the progress of partnerships in achieving the EU objectives the UN Sustainable Development Goals, both individually and collectively, at EU and national level. The BMR 2022 focuses on Horizon Europe’s new partnership landscape and establishes benchmarks for assessing progress in future reports. It further provides a snapshot of the 27 EU Member States, Iceland, and Norway performance in Partnerships (‘country fiches), as well as of the individual European Partnership performance (‘Partnership fiches’). The report explores the added value of Partnerships by providing examples of outcomes and impacts.

This is the first in a series of four BMRs planned to be published in 2022, 2024, 2026 and 2028. The four planned BMRs will have fixed content that will be repeated in each of the reports. In addition, each will discuss a limited number of cross-cutting themes, which will vary from one BMR to the next.

Full report can be found on the website of the European Commission.
