Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over a period of 7 years (2014 to 2020). The goal is to drive economic growth and create jobs by funding development and commercialization of new technologies responding to Europe’s current challenges.

Horizon 2020 is combining support for research and innovation, putting an emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal issues such as climate change. The programme helps to ensure Europe removes barriers to innovation and the public and private sectors work together in commercializing novel technologies.

Horizon 2020 funds research & innovation in various thematic areas, such as:

  • Smart Green and Integrated Transport
  • Clean and Efficient Energy
  • Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
  • Healthcare
  • Food and Agriculture
  • Advanced Materials and Nanomaterials
  • Biotechnology
  • Security

Additionally, certain thematically-open funding instruments are available, such as the “SME Instrument”, addressing small and medium-sized enterprises, and the “Fast Track to Innovation”, addressing industrial players of all sizes with mature innovative technologies.

Horizon 2020 is open for large industries, SMEs, research institutes, universities and public authorities located across all EU Member States. Participants from certain associated countries (e.g. Norway, Israel, Switzerland, Turkey) also enjoy access to Horizon 2020 funds.
