Proposal & implementation

The implementation of Horizon 2020 projects differs in many ways from research activities funded by national programmes. The EU documents and websites about calls for proposals, proposal submission and project management address all 28 EU Member States, countries associated to Horizon 2020 as well as Third Countries. The information is therefore published in English and will deviate from legal and financial requirements known on national level.

Horizon 2020 continues most financial and contractual rules of former Framework Programmes. However, many changes were introduced in the light of the overriding objective to simplify the programme.

The submenue pages provide general information about proposal procedures, contract management and project implementation.
