Catia Bastioli among the members of the Mission Board for Soil Health and Food created by the European Commission
On 30th July Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, announced the names of the experts who have been selected as members of the mission boards to work on five of the main challenges Europe is facing. The missions will be part of Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027).
Catia Bastioli, CEO of Novamont, has been selected as a member of the Mission Board for Soil Health and Food. The other boards will identify specific missions on cancer, climate change, healthy oceans and climate-neutral cities.
Over 2100 individuals from across the EU and beyond applied to become member of a mission board. The selection process ensured that the boards are composed of 15 experts from a wide range of backgrounds, including academics, innovators, civil society, industry, finance and end-users.
A first discussion with citizens, stakeholders and experts from Member States will take place at the European Research and Innovation Days in Brussels from 24 to 26 September.
