Horizon 2020 EU Funding Programme

LEPT have published a briefing for boroughs on the upcoming Horizon 2020 calls. Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020), including sustainable mobility.

The call for proposals has been published, and opens on 23 June 2015 with a deadline of 15 October 2015 for project submissions. 

Each funding area has an approximate budget foreseen by the EC which ranges from €2 to €8 million or more. Horizon 2020 offers a funding rate of 100% on all costs for Research and Innovation projects and Coordination and Support projects or 70% for Innovation projects.

Boroughs are encouraged to contact Alex Quayle with any queries, expressions of interest or project ideas by 8 June 2015.
