Horizon 2020 – the future EU funding programme for research and innovation

EU Research, Innovation and Science Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn has announced that “Horizon 2020” is the winner of a vote to name the future EU-funding programme for research and innovation.

It is the name for the new, integrated funding system that will cover all research and innovation funding currently provided through the Framework Programme for Research and Technical Development, the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). These different types of funding will be brought together in a coherent and flexible manner.

It will enter into force in January 2014, after the end of FP7 on 31 Dec 2013.
