Cluster 2 – Culture, Creativity & Inclusive Society

Under the Pillar 2 of Horizon Europe, Cluster 2 “Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society” focusses on challenges pertaining to democratic governance, cultural heritage and the creative economy, as well as social and economic transformations.

The Cluster aims to contribute to all policy priorities of the Commission, namely the new push to European democracy, an economy that works for people, the European Green Deal, making Europe fit for the digital age, promoting our European way of life and making Europe stronger in the world. It also addresses issues relevant to the twin Green and Digital transitions and the post-COVID 19 recovery. Future projects should deliver on the three intervention areas matching the Horizon Europe Strategic Plan (2021-2024):

  • Democracy and governance
  • Cultural heritage
  • Social and economic transformations

All topics under this Cluster are expected to mainstream Social Sciences and Humanities and to include a gender dimension.


All sessions will be available to watch from this page. No registration is required.
