Leave a comment


The Work Programme for 2016/17 has today been formally launched by Commissioner Carlos Moedas – you can watch the press conference here. The launch is accompanied by a fact sheet which gives some insight into the thinking behind and political context of the latest calls.

Although there is a little delay, the full set of documents will be available shortly on Participants Portal and we’ll be publishing more information over the next couple of days.

Finally, for those of you who like your numbers, the overarching Work Programme, valued at €16bn includes 16 work programmes for each area and will support 63 calls for proposals over a total of 600 topics in 2016/17.

If you’re interested in getting involved in Horizon 2020, then as ever, please do get in touch (
