Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). It is the successor of FP7, the seventh Framework Programme.
For the European policy maker, Horizon 2020 is a means to implement the Innovation Union and the Europe 2020 strategy, designed to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness thanks to a wide variety of funding instruments, research domains, and other targeted measures. For European and Luxembourg research organisations or innovative companies, Horizon 2020 is a unique opportunity to join European-wide or international teams to further their research agenda. The programme offers interesting funding opportunities.
