H2020 Funding - search for calls and gets call updatesBack
On this site you can find and secure funding for research & innovation projects under the following EU programmes:
- 2014-2020 Horizon 2020 - research and innovation framework programme
- 2007-2013 7th research framework programme (FP7) and Competitiveness & Innovation Programme (CIP)
- COSME - Programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and SMEs (COSME)
Horizon 2020 is the new EU funding programme for research and innovation running from 2014 to 2020 with a €80 billion budget. The first calls for proposals for Horizon 2020 were published on 11 December 2013. Its simplified rules and submission and grant management tools should facilitate participants' tasks. For practical guidance, see the H2020 online manual.
H2020 supports SMEs with a new instrument that runs throughout various funded research and innovation fields, so it should be easy for SMEs to find opportunities in many calls.
H2020 also aims to enhance EU international research cooperation so there are more opportunities for Third Country participation.
Having built H2020 around the main societal challenges like an ageing population, food security, energy efficiency, the EU attaches high importance to embed socio-economic sciences and humanities into the work programme.
Another important priority of the Commission is to ensure gender is embedded in the design of Horizon 2020 project proposals.
