Work programme

The official workprogramme 2016-2017 is available. A short summary can be found below. Detailed information on the EC Participant Portal.

Digital technologies underpin innovation and competitiveness across a broad range of market sectors. The topics addressed in this Work Programme part cover the ICT technology in a comprehensive way, from key enabling technologies to networking technologies, robotics, content and information management technologies. Pursuing the change initiated under Work Programme 2014-2015, activities will continue to promote more innovation-orientation to ensure that the EU industry remains strong in the core technologies that are at the roots of future value chains.

A novelty in Horizon 2020 is the Pilot on Open Research Data which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects. Projects funded under the ICT call of the Work Programme 2016-17 will by default participate in the Pilot on Open Research Data in Horizon 2020. Projects have the possibility to opt out of the Pilot.

A further new element in Horizon 2020 is the use of Data Management Plans (DMPs) detailing what data the project will generate, whether and how it will be exploited or made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved. The use of a DMP is required for projects participating in the Open Research Data Pilot. Other projects are invited to submit a DMP if relevant for their planned research. Only funded projects are required to submit a DMP.
