What are Volt's political goals? / A new economy that works for everyone

Triple funding to Horizon Europe

  • Increase investment in innovation of public goods and state-funded services that have been side-lined for too long. Health, education, cybersecurity, human-centred AI, microtechnology, and networks must work for all EU citizens and be geared towards projects with a clear focus on sustainability and green growth.

  • Increase funds to support programmes that improve the digitalisation of our public processes and functions.

  • Develop research in critical and underdeveloped sustainability areas.

The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
