Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market. Horizon 2020 focuses on three main pillars: 

  • excellent science to strengthen the Union's world-class scientific excellence and make the Union research and innovation system more competitive,
  • fostering industrial leadership to speed up the development of technologies that will support businesses and innovation, including for small companies,
  • tackling societal challenges to respond to the priorities identified in the Europe 2020 strategy.

In addition, there are two horizontal programmes:

  • Spreading excellence and widening participation,
  • Science with and for society.

The Institute for Sustainable Technologies – National Research Institute is ready to participate in the Horizon 2020 as a project partner or coordinator in the areas shown in the figure below.
