SME in Horizon 2020: Identify all funding opportunities


Horizon 2020 is the next Framework Program for Research and Innovation. It is part of the drive to create new growth and jobs in Europe and will run from 2014 to 2020 with an €80 billion budget. This new financial instrument will facilitate access to funding for SME through the introduction of a comprehensive program adapted to their needs. 20% of the total budget for all societal challenges and the enabling and industrial technologies will go to SMEs. SMEs will be supported across Horizon 2020 pillars or priorities in all forms of R&D and all forms of innovation, towards exploitation and commercialisation. 


Euresearch provides information and support to facilitate the SME participation in the various funding opportunities of H2020: 

  • Bottom-up Innovation projects for SME (new, application also possible for single SME!)
  • Collaborative R&D projects in multidisciplinary consortia (mostly in defined domains) 
  • Fellowships for industry-academia exchanges (bottom-up)
