Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 (H2020) is the main European funding programme for research and innovation. It has a budget of 79 billion Euro and will run until 2020. The programme aims to ensure that Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation. The European Commission’s Participant Portal publishes 'calls' for proposals during the year around a number of thematic areas. Typically, schemes under H2020 are based on the collaboration of at least three organisations from three different members states. Companies of all size can apply. Interested?
