Horizon 2020 Overview
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever, with 79 billion euros of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). UCL aims to be at the forefront of Horizon 2020 participation, and the UCL European Research & Innovation Office (ERIO) aims to facilitate UCL's achievement of this position.
Our Mission Statement
Horizon 2020 Work Programmes & Calls
Important note - ERIO will try to keep the links below up to date, however before starting work on a proposal please check the official EU Horizon 2020 page (and use the version hosted there), and contact ERIO for guidance. We also offer a number of services to assist UCL academics leading collaborative proposals.
The UCL European Research and Innovation Office has remained engaged in discussions with the European Commission throughout drafting of Horizon 2020, on behalf of UCL. For further information about the programme please contact ERIO. UCL staff may also sign up for ERIO's Horizon 2020 newsletter.
UCL's Horizon 2020 Strategy
Building on UCL's significant success in previous EU Framework Programmes, ERIO has set a strategic vision in which ERIO enables UCL to become the worldwide leader in the coordination of collaborative Horizon 2020 projects. This vision will require:
- The successful continuation of ERIO's European Project Management service, which is currently managing a €148 million portfolio of 26 European collaborative projects funded under FP7.
The development and implementation of new ERIO services to encourage and support UCL's academic communities in leading new Horizon 2020 proposals. These services include:
UCL is also a founder member of Vision 2020: The Horizon Network, a platform for excellent research organisations and companies collaborating in Horizon 2020 proposals and projects.
Specific UCL Policies for Horizon 2020
- Teams submitting proposals to the Teaming & Twinning programmes must submit an outline business case to ERIO at least four weeks before the call deadline. Further details.
- All projects coordinated by UCL must include provision for financial, contractual and administrative management tasks to be carried out by ERIO. Please contact Ilaria Marsili at an early stage to discuss your requirements.
