Petition Summary  

The petitioner is dissatisfied that the Commission’s proposal for Horizon Europe, the research and innovation programme of the European Union from 2021 to 2027, excludes human genetic research from eligibility for funding. The petitioner argues that this fails to protect and promote scientific progress in the treatment of serious diseases, in line with fundamental human rights, by excluding from funding research that has the potential to lead to the prevention or treatment of such serious genetic conditions.
