Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU research and innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020).

The funding is distributed through funding competitions on different sectors. Two year work programmes announce the specific areas that will be funded by Horizon 2020.

Most funding competitions to which companies would participate are either:
  • SME instrument: The dedicated SME instrument supports close-to-market activities, with the aim to give a strong boost for ambitious SMEs to breakthrough innovation.
  • Collaboration projects with other partners (two other partners from two other member states or associated countries are required).
