Horizon 2020

Next EU funding programme

Horizon 2020 will have a strong focus on developing European industrial capabilities in Key Enabling Technologies. These include:

  • Micro- and nano-electronics; photonics
  • Nanotechnologies
  • Advanced materials
  • Biotechnology
  • Advanced manufacturing  and processing
  • Development of these technologies requires a multi-disciplinary, knowledge and capital-intensive approach.


    International cooperation will be an important cross-cutting priority of Horizon 2020. In addition to Horizon 2020 being fully open to international participation, targeted actions with key partner countries and regions will focus on the EU’s strategic priorities. Through a new strategy, a strategic and coherent approach to international cooperation will be ensured across Horizon 2020.
