Dear Time Machine friends!

There is always a lot going on within the Time Machine project, and we are delighted to now be able to share more of this with you.

As you may have heard, the European Commission is currently exploring how the existing Horizon 2020 programme will be transformed into the new Horizon Europe programme which will start in 2021. As it has become fairly clear that new “flagships” will no longer be part of the future framework programme, the Commission is actively engaging in discussion and consultation regarding which solutions can be found for the current CSAs in Horizon Europe. For instance, perhaps in the form of "partnerships" or new “missions” that are currently on the table.

Recent discussions in Brussels indicate that there will be a proper landing place for our project by next year within Horizon 2020. Thus, we encourage our 400+ partners to co-shape the programme by answering massively to the EU survey "Horizon Europe Co-design 2021-2024". The survey will close on 8 September 2019.

The Time Machine Roadmaps - Mapping the Future

The key objective of the Time Machine CSA project is to produce a full Large-Scale Research Initiative proposal to develop the Big Data of the Past – a widely distributed digital information system mapping the European social, cultural and geographical evolution. 

The methodology for building the overall roadmap of Time Machine envisages the elaboration of draft roadmaps for each pillar by working groups composed of consortium experts and subsequent consultations with the largest possible number of relevant external stakeholders. These consultations will enable the consortium to finalise the pillar roadmaps in a way that reflects the needs and expectations of a pan-European ecosystem that has been built around Time Machine and is currently expanding rapidly.

To provide information on Time Machine`s fields of intervention and to gather feedback from various interest groups to further shape the Time Machine project, we invite you to take our corresponding survey.
