Horizon 2020 (H2020) is the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money attracts. By coupling research and innovation, H2020 puts an emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges, as its 3 main pillars. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
Horizon 2020 is open to sectors, domains and fields, with the aim of breaking down barriers to create a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation. H2020 promises more breakthroughs and discoveries by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
Beacon Tech has a track record of two decades in EU funded research and innovation projects from all 3 pillars. Our experience spans over FP4, FP5, FP6, FP7 and Horizon 2020. When working on these projects we employ our unique Pre-Award and Post-Award methodologies.
