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.
In the pillar "Excellent Science", Horizon 2020 provides funding for projects and fellowships in the Physical & Exact Sciences through the European Research Council (ERC), Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA), Research Infrastructures, and Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programmes.
The “Societal Challenges” pillar is predominantly technologically oriented. Nevertheless, some of the topics could involve the Physical & Exact Sciences.
The “Leadership in Enabling & Industrial Technologies (LEIT)” programme will cover ICT, Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology, Advanced Manufacturing & Processing, and Space, where Physical & Exact Sciences may also play a major role. The roadmaps for these themes have been developed in close collaboration with several Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and European Technology Platforms (ETPs).
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.
