EU Funding Programmes
Ideal Opportunities for Innovative Companies
Horizon Europe, (former Horizon 2020) is EU's ambitious EUR 100 billion research and innovation programme that aims to boost the economy, create jobs and improve lives.
Horizon Europe funds ground-breaking research and innovation within the industries of cities, agriculture, digital, energy and oceans. From 2021-2027, EIC is expected to offer funding up to €10 billion, much of it allocated to the EIC Accelerator programme.
Having an innovative idea that addresses one or more focus areas of the EC policies is an indispensable condition for being successful in the grant application process. The various EU funding programmes aim to turn Europe into an innovation union. Over the last 30 years, EU has invested more than EUR 200 billion in research and innovation across Europe so innovative companies can "de-risk" and attract private investors.
