Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the largest European funding program for research and innovation. It runs from 2014 to 2020 and is the successor to Framework Programme 7 (FP7, 2007-2013) and FP6 (2002-2006). The Horizon 2020 budget comprises approximately 80 billion euros.

Horizon 2020 aims to help Europe conduct excellent research, remove barriers to innovation and facilitate collaboration between the private and public sectors.

Complementary to H2020, further measures are being taken to realize the European Research Area (ERA).
