Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the main European research and innovation funding scheme. The 70 billion Euro funding progamme will run from 2014 until 2020 and has a simplified funding model - 100% of direct costs, plus an additional 25% on top to cover overheads.

All calls for the next two years have now been published, see below for the official work programmes. For a summary of the calls by subject area, please see our Roadmap.

For more information, slides and assistance please see the useful links and events pages. To browse previously successful applications, please see Kent's list of awarded projects. If you are interested in applying and require funding to meet with collaborators, please do contact the funding team.
