European Heads of Research Councils

EUROHORCs is a European association of the heads of research funding organisations (RFO) and research performing organisations (RPO).
The acronym originates from European Heads of Research Councils. EUROHORCs was established in 1992 as an informal association of national research councils and public non-university research organisations of the EU Member States and Associated Countries.
In the last few years, EUROHORCs has become an active player in the field of European research policy by promoting and enhancing inter-council cooperation. EUROHORCs seek to enhance the role of the national research funding and research performing organisations in Europe through creating a platform for discussion, initiating joint activities and strengthening their influence on European research policy.
