Horizon 2020: European Innovation Fund Seeks Business Projects (UK)

Seven new Horizon 2020 initiatives that aim to ensure that Europe produces world class science will be launched on the 20th September 2016.

Together they will see €600million invested in businesses and research. The UK Government has advised that businesses and universities should continue to bid for EU funding while the UK remains a member of the EU and that it would underwrite payment of awards even when projects continued beyond UK membership.

The funding calls that are being launched are:

  • Mobility for Growth
  • Autonomous Road Transport
  • Personalised coaching for well-being and care of people as they age
  • Support for large scale uptake of digital innovation for active and healthy ageing
  • Factories of the future public private partnership
  • SPIRE (sustainable process industries) public private partnership
  • Energy efficient buildings public private partnership.

Please see the website for further details of each initiative and closing dates.
