29 October 2015

Spanning seven years (2014 to 2020) and working with a budget of €77 billion, Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU research and innovation funding programme ever. The European Commission (EC) recently adopted the second of its two-year work programmes setting out funding opportunities for 2016-2017. This Work Programme offers a budget of almost €16 billion.
Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-17 is directly aligned with the agenda of the Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. It will contribute to the Jobs, Growth and Investment Package helping to strengthen Europe’s global competitiveness, create new and sustainable jobs and promote growth (Press Release EC, 13 October 2015).
