Priorities for the remaining years of the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme

The final work programme of Horizon 2020 covering calls for proposals for 2018, 2019 and 2020 is expected to the launched in autumn 2017. The priorities for these remaining years of the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme are security, the circular and low-carbon economy, boosting international collaboration and getting the European Innovation Council up and running, according to Robert-Jan Smits, the European Commission director general for research and innovation.
 
Horizon 2020 is currently behind its target of allocating 35 per cent of the money to climate action. Another target the Commission is pursuing is to drive up international collaboration. Participation in Horizon 2020 from beyond the EU is disappointing, and whereas almost 5 per cent of grant winners in Framework Programme 7 were from countries outside the EU, this has now fallen to only 2.2 per cent. This is partially explained by a change in the rules which means Brazil, Russia, India, China and Mexico must provide matched funding. But countries such as the US, Canada and Japan, operating under the same rules as before, are considerably less involved in Horizon 2020 than in FP7.
