If your company or knowledge institution is engaged in international research, technology development and/or innovation, you may be eligible for Horizon 2020 funding.
About Horizon 2020
Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s largest research and innovation programme. Its objective is to ensure Europe’s global competitiveness in research and innovation and to create jobs. It seeks to maximise European added value and its three main pillars are aligned with the EU agenda for growth and jobs (Europe 2020) and the Innovation Union flagship initiative. These three pillars are:
- Excellent Science
To maintain and strengthen Europe’s leading position in scientific excellence.
- Industrial Leadership
To help innovative European businesses become world-leading companies.
- Societal Challenges
To combine resources and support multidisciplinary efforts to achieve Europe 2020 targets.
Who can apply?
The programme offers funding opportunities for businesses and organisations engaged in international research, technology development and/or innovation.
Horizon 2020 was launched in 2014 and will run until the end of 2020. The overall budget is in excess of € 70 billion.
Rules for funding
Eligibility for Horizon 2020 funding is determined by rules. The programme offers a wide range of funding opportunities for research and innovation activities through calls for proposals. Some of these calls address societal challenges, others promote disruptive innovation by SMEs. The rules differ in each case. Some calls require a consortium to apply, others are open to individual applicants.
Applying for funding
Calls for proposals are issued throughout the year. Our consultants will help you identify the calls best suited to your innovation. They can also advise you on how to set up a project. If you have a good idea or a promising innovation, we can put you in touch with possible partners to implement the project.
