This page aims to give you an overview of the types of European funding most suitable for your discipline in relation to the Innovation Axis.
Horizon 2020 offers programmes that include basic research in the pillar of "Excellent Science", such as Future and Emerging Technologies (FET), grants of the European Research Council (ERC), aiming at excellence, and the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA), promoting mobility.
Researchers in Measurement & Standards will find topics in specific areas of all of the Societal Challenges. As the Societal Challenges require a multi-disciplinary approach, the field of Measurement is relevant to the majority of research and innovation topics. Research involving Standards will be found in topics that aim for standardisation and/or commercialisation.
The majority of topics for Measurement & Standards researchers will be found in the Industrial Leadership pillar, especially in areas of strong industrial involvement. Innovative approaches in Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), a major component of "Leadership in Enabling & Industrial Technologies" (LEIT), may require measurement and standardisation activities, especially when operating on a European level.
Facilitating cooperation activities in research and innovation is the key to bridging the gap between research and the market. Partners for various types of cooperation are available in the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) database. Below are a selection of partnering profiles related to this thematic. Further cooperation opportunities are published on the EEN Marketplace.
