Horizon 2020 launched with €15 billion over first two years


The European Commission has launched the first calls for proposals under the Horizon 2020 framework programme. Worth more than €15 billion over the first two years, the funding programme will boost Europe’s knowledge-driven economy, and tackle issues that will make a difference in people’s lives.

The Commission has indicated funding priorities over the next two years, providing researchers and businesses with a clear view on the direction of EU research policy. Most calls from the 2014 budget are already open for submissions, with more to follow over the course of the year. Calls in the 2014 budget alone are worth around €7.8 billion.
