Horizon 2020: €30 billion for new solutions for societal challenges and breakthrough innovation

31 Oct 2017

The European Commission has earmarked €30 billion for Horizon 2020 during 2018-2020 in the last work programme. According to the Commission, over the next 3 years, it will strive for greater impact of its research funding by focusing on fewer, but critical topics such as migration, security, climate, clean energy and digital economy. Horizon 2020 will also be more geared towards boosting breakthrough, market-creating innovation.

A novelty in the final work programme are the four mutually reinforcing Focus Areas that cut across the programme boundaries and are aligned to major policy priorities:
– Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future
– Connecting economic and environmental gains – the Circular Economy
– Digitising and transforming European industry and services
– Boosting the effectiveness of the Security Union’.
