Horizon 2020 offers 3 potentially interesting programmes for basic research: the grants of the European Research Council (ERC), aiming at excellence, the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA), promoting mobility, and the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme.
Researchers in Industrial Technologies will find topics in the Societal Challenge "Climate action, environment, resource efficiency & raw materials".
There are a number of interesting topics in the Industrial Leadership pillar under "Leadership in Enabling & Industrial Technologies", specifically in the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) of Micro- and nano-electronics, Photonics, Nanotechnologies, Advanced materials, and Advanced manufacturing and processing. In addition, a specific area is reserved for SME bottom-up topics.
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.
