Horizon2020(H2020) is the European Union’s 8th Framework Programme for research and innovation. With a total budget of nearly 80 billion Euro it is the largest public research & innovation funding programme in the world. Horizon2020 runs from 2014-2020.
I started working in Brussels in 2008, when the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) had just started and as a research lobbyist for public research organisations I followed the development of that programme and the making of H2020.
The blog posts under this category was started as a response to the H2020 interim evaluation and the beginning discussions over FP9 that started in autumn 2016.
I have followed H2020 as a research lobbyist, as proposal writer and as a project participant and the posts reflect this experience.
