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

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

Horizon 2020 combines all previous Research and Innovation instruments:

  • the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7);
  • the Competiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP);
  • and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
It is the largest funding instrument for research and innovation with a budget around 80 billion euro 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.
