Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
The program areas include Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership (including Future Internet), Societal Challenges, Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation, Science with and for Society, European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), and Euratom.
GÉANT is part of the Excellent Science: e-infrastructures program with a vital role to ensure Horizon 2020 project participants are fully able to collaborate, share and access data, discuss and learn together, and test their innovations across the network unimpeded.
