Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Running from 2014 until 2020 with a budget of about €77 billion, Horizon 2020 is the biggest multinational research programme in the world. It funds research in all areas of science and innovation.
The core of the Horizon 2020 programme consists mainly of 3 pillars: Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges. Next to other programmes as Spreading excellence and Widening participation and Science with and for Society the Joint Research Center is also highlighted.
Besides Horizon 2020 there are many other relevant funding programmes managed by several agencies and directorates of the European Commission.
National Contact Point Flanders (NCP Flanders) informs about the Horizon 2020 Programme, organises information events, advises and assists researchers and organisation on administrative procedures, rules and issues. NCP Flanders has advisors from the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) and Flanders Innovation and Entrepeneurship.
