Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme.
Nearly €80 billion of funding are available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) with the objective to take great ideas from the lab to the market.
Horizon 2020 couples research and innovation with emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removing barriers to innovation and making it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
Horizon 2020 is open to everyone, with a simple structure that reduces red tape and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach makes sure new projects get off the ground quickly – and achieve results faster.
