    Do you know your programme?

    Euresearch is mandated to offer services on the European Union research and innovation
    programmes. The programmes presented in these sub-pages are key initiatives coming from the
    Europe 2020 Initiative.

    Horizon 2020 – the successor to the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) – is the prominent funding programme. It runs from 2014 to 2020 with a €70.2 billion budget and is part of the drive to create new growth and jobs in Europe.

    The other programmes are part of the Innovation Union, which is one of the 7 Flagship Initiatives of the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

    The Innovation Union has main 3 goals:

    • make Europe a world-class science Performer
    • remove obstacles to innovation – like expensive patenting, market fragmentation, slow standard setting and skills shortages – that currently prevent ideas getting to market quickly
    • revolutionise the way public and private sectors work together, notably through Innovation Partnerships between European institutions, national and regional authorities and Business.
