HaDEA is born


The new European Health and Digital Executive Agency is born!

This is not just another brick in the wall of the EU, but a truly remarkable milestone.

HaDEA will address, it is stated on the Agency’s website, the European Commission’s ambition to help rebuild a post-COVID-19 Europe, which will be greener, more digital, more resilient and better fit for the current and forthcoming challenges.

And in order to reach such goals, the Agency is ready to contribute with an exceedingly large dowage:

  • EU4Health programme: €5,1 billion;
  • Horizon Europe: Pillar II, Cluster 1: Health: €4,8 billion;
  • Single Market Programme: Food safety: health for humans, animals and plants along the food chain and better training for safer food: €1,3 billion;
  • Digital Europe Programme: €0,8 billion;
  • Connecting Europe Facility: Digital: €1,7 billion;
  • Horizon Europe: Pillar II, cluster 4: Digital, Industry and Space: €5,5 billion.

On top of that, from 2021 to 2023 additional budget amounting to €1,6 billion «will available from the New Generation EU fund for actions that are part of the Digital and Health strands of the Horizon Europe programme».

The European Health and Digital Executive Agency is born. Welcome to HaDEA.

The expected total budget managed by the HaDEA will amount to over €20 billion over the 7 years period of the 2021–2027 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF).

The legacy of the pandemic is obvious in the Agency’s governance plan: DG SANTE, the Directorate-General in charge of health and food safety, will be in the lead, setting the trail for CNECT, DEFIS, GROW, RTD. Healthtech and biotech are progressively (and non-linearly) converging towards digital sustainability.
