Horizon 2020: one single programme combining all Research and Innovation instruments

Horizon 2020: one single programme combining all Research and Innovation instruments

Horizon 2020, the new research and innovation programme of the European Union, combines all previous Research and Innovation instruments:

  • the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7);
  • the Competiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP);
  • the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
It is the largest funding instrument for research and innovation with a budget of 80 billioneuro for seven years (2014-2020).

Work programmes are made up for 2 year in order to give researchers more time to prepare their proposals.
An overview of the up-to-date work programmes can be found here.
