Horizon 2020: New Work Programmes are on their way!

Leave a comment


Although we’re only half way through 2015, plans are well underway for the 2016/17 calls for proposals for Horizon 2020. Draft Work Programmes are at an advanced stage of development and you’ll have seen details of a number of events popping up on the Blog relating to the new phase of H2020.

We’re anticipating that H2020 will keep the same structure with the same Societal Challenges, industrially focused opportunities and initiatives to support excellence and the development of researchers. (For a quick refresher on the structure and the Programme take a look at UKRO’s excellent H2020 overview here – you’ll need to log in to view).

We’re expecting Work Programmes to be finalised and adopted over the coming months, with deadlines from late 2015 onwards for the 2016 Calls for Proposals, so keep an eye on the Blog for the latest developments!

If you’re interested in finding out more about a particular area, please get in touch and we can tell you what we know so far (
