Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument for implementing the Innovation Union, a flagship Europe 2020 initiative aimed at safeguarding Europe’s global competitiveness.
As a means of promoting economic growth and creating jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political support of European leaders and Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and put it at the heart of the EU’s plan for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.
By linking research and innovation, Horizon 2020 helps to achieve this by focusing on excellence in science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The aim is to ensure that Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together to deliver innovation.
Horizon 2020 is open to all, with a simple structure that reduces bureaucracy and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach ensures that new projects are launched quickly – and deliver results faster.
