Horizon is the place to find out about science and research projects funded by the EU. Our articles are written by independent science journalists and are designed to appeal to both scientists and non-scientists alike.

We combine stories about EU-funded research with interviews with scientists. We also look at a specific area of research every month, such as 3D printing or Europe’s obesity epidemic. Our content is updated daily and access is free.

Horizon is published by the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. You can read it on both desktop and mobile devices. We also use social media. For story suggestions or questions, e-mail the editor.
