H2020 – Work programme 2018-20 is here!

Horizon%202020

Slightly later than originally anticipated, the work programme for the final phase of Horizon 2020 has now been published and the first calls launched.

As well as the areas that will be familiar to those with an interest in Horizon 2020, we also see the launch of the European Innovation Council (EIC), which brings together a number of support measures to foster ‘breakthrough, market-creating innovation’.

The table below provides links to selected annexes of the work programme which set out topics for each of the key areas and associated deadlines.

As ever, if you’re considering a proposal, please do get in touch (euro_res@mmu.ac.uk).

You can also take advantage of our visit from Ian Devine of UKRO next week (31 October 2017) to find out more about the work programme and some of the thinking behind priorities. To book your place, please visit the registration page here. If you can’t make the 31 October 2017, Ian will also be speaking at the Universities of Salford and Manchester (1 and 2 November 2017). Please contact us for more details of  how to register (euro_res@mmu.ac.uk).
