Horizon 2020 is the largest research and innovation funding program in the world. It provides funds and instruments for the entire spectrum of research and innovation activities, which include, for example:

  • Individual fellowships
  • Project grants
  • Networking platforms
  • Team-based collaborative research
  • Research for policy
  • Industrial research platforms
  • Innovation management
  • … and much more, in all discipline areas

Australian organisations (and individuals) are welcome to participate in most aspects of Horizon 2020, and stand to gain significant advancements by participating, including a slice of the €80 billion in available funding.

This document distils the enormous array of opportunities into an easy-to-read subset suitable for Australian actors to absorb.

As you can see from the table of contents (right), there are opportunities for every field of research, and for every Australian researcher interested in international engagement.
