  • Future and emerging technologies: to fund collaborative research to open up new and promising fields of research and innovation

  • Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions: to provide researchers with excellent training and career development opportunities

  • European Research infrastructures: to ensure that Europe has world-class research infrastructures (including e-infrastructures) accessible to all researchers in Europe and beyond
