Collaborative Research

European collaborative research represents the core of EU research and innovation funding under Horizon 2020. Prominent features of EU collaborative research are: a multitude of funding options, thematic priorities with a variable degree of specification, regular collaboration of science and industry/society, different governance models for funding.

Part III of Horizon 2020, Societal Challenges, may serve as a thematic "key currency" in Horizon 2020; the challenges are provided with a large budget and designed to follow an interdisciplinary approach. The distribution of a research topic over several funding lines and instruments is characteristic of Collaborative Research in Horizon 2020.

KoWi provides advice and practical support regarding the acquisition and implementation of collaborative research and innovation projects. KoWi is your guide in Horizon 2020, covering the Societal Challenges and Leading and Industrial Technologies, Future and Emerging Technologies as well as Public-Private and Public-Public Partnerships.
