Horizon 2020

Pocket

One scheme (if we can call it by such a small name) that’s been on people’s lips lately, and that you should really be aware, if you’re not yet, is Horizon 2020.

Horizon 2020 is a huge “research and innovation” EU programme. How big? Try €80b over 7 years. That’s over €10b a year. I don’t know how much of that will go to UK companies, but given that the UK’s Technology Strategy Board gives out about £400m a year, I think it’s not unreasonable to assume that a large enough chunk of Horizon 2020 will get to the UK to at least double that amount of grant funding.

Of course, there’s not a single programme about to disburse €10b a year all in one go – the money is split into many smaller programmes, which you can find an exhaustive list of here. Many are themed, e.g. several around mobile health like this one, which comes in at a chunky €303m.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be dissecting all those funding calls one by one to try and make sense of them for you. Since the schemes tend to be themed rather than general purpose, it’s important that you contact us if you would like us to help with an application, as we won’t be able to explain all the schemes over the phone when talking to you! Subscribe to make sure you don’t miss them. The schemes will also be announced in the newsletter (sign up on the right).
