18. Highlights the vital role that Horizon Europe plays in supporting research and innovation and in helping to turn research results and innovative ideas into products and services that boost the global competitiveness of EU business; recalls that the programme remains heavily over-subscribed and is therefore unable to support a large number of research projects evaluated as ‘excellent’; proposes, therefore, to increase allocations for the programme by a total of EUR 140 million compared to the DB (excluding the STEP- related increases), with reinforcements for the European Research Council, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and Clusters ‘Health’, ‘Culture’ ‘Climate, Energy and Mobility’ and ‘Food’; highlights the importance of additional funding for dedicated and targeted research on Long Covid, Post Vac and ME/CFS, in order to finance translational research, clinical trials and pivotal studies also in cooperation with pharmaceutical industry, including through private public partnerships;
