Horizon 2020 is the eighth EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

H2020 provides funding to researchers:

  • at any stage of their career,
  • of any nationality.

It also funds research collaborations and individual researchers, from fundamental to application-oriented research.
We will be happy to provide you with information about the various funding programmes, such as the ERC grants and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
