Target Audience: Academic, Research & Research support staff at all levels.

The programme aims to ensure that Europe produces world-class science; removes barriers to innovation; & makes it easier for public & private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.

The last calls published under the 2018-2020 Work programme have a combined value of over €30bn

Funding calls are based in 3 areas/pillars:

  • Excellent Science: focused on raising the level of Europe’s science base by supporting the best ideas, developing European talent and providing researchers with access to a research infrastructure;
  • Industrial Leadership: focused on stimulating the growth potential of European companies by offering access to finance, encouraging private investment in research and development, and offering support for innovative SMEs;
  • Societal Challenges: focused on the biggest challenges facing modern society.  This area reflects the policy priorities of the European Commission and covers all stages of research and innovation, from concept to market.

The aim of this sessions is to:

  1. Provide an overview of the funding opportunities available across the three main pillars of Horizon 2020

Brexit: Please note that, in the context of Brexit, UK organisations remain eligible to apply for EU funding until the UK leaves the EU.  If a Withdrawal Agreement is agreed as part of leaving, the UK will be eligible to participate in Horizon 2020 until the end of 2020, and for the lifetime of individual projects.  In the event of a “No Deal” Brexit, UK organisations will continue to be eligible to apply to and take part in most Horizon 2020 schemes on the basis of third country participation and, where proposals are successfully evaluated, should be able to receive funding via the UK Treasury Guarantee.

Additional information on how Brexit may affect UK participation in EU programme can be found in the UK Brexit Factsheet
