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.
