Horizon 2020

Innovation funding

Promoting and funding innovation is a central concern within Horizon 2020 – this has been explicitly demonstrated by including the term in the Framework Programme’s name. In view of this, Horizon 2020 offers a package of actions aiming at several relevant factors in the innovation process.

Besides the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), the actions address primarily the different project types under Horizon 2020, the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) as well as the needs for financing and capital in particular developing phases of the innovation process.
