    The new calls H2020-DRS-2014, H2020-FCT-2014 and H2020-BES-2014 were already published in December 2013 as part of the H2020 launch. However, the calls only opened for proposers last week.

    €151 million available for 21 Topics, Deadline: 28 August 2014

    The three calls cover a wide range of topics of potential interesting to a variety of specialists: Crisis Management, Disaster Resilience & Climate Change, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Communication Technologies & Interoperability, Forensics, Law Enforcement Capabilities, Urban Security, Maritime Border Security, Border Crossing Points, Supply Chain Security, and External Security.
    Detailed information on the respective topics can be found in the Horizon 2020 Participant Portal.

    Please note that the current status of Switzerland as a “Third Country” in Horizon 2020 does not as such infringe on your ability to participate in any proposals to be submitted to these calls. As participants in Switzerland cannot receive any funding from the European Commission for the time being, the Federal Council has given the State Secretariat for Education Research and Innovation (SERI) the task of drawing up an interim solution for the direct financing of successful Swiss participations in Horizon 2020.


    If you have any questions regarding the submission of a Secure Societies proposal, please contact the Regional Office near you.
