Missions will create a stronger link between EU research and innovation and the needs of society and the public; with great visibility and great impact.

A mission is a wide range of measures designed to achieve a bold, inspiring and measurable objective within a given period of time, with effects on society and politics, and relevant to a large part of the EU population.
