EU Funding

"Horizon 2020" is the name of the European Union's current research framework programme for research and innovation. As a funding programme, it’s aim is to build a knowledge- and innovation-based society and a competitive economy throughout the EU while contributing to sustainable development. In order to have a targeted impact on society, the programme sets priorities and contains a comprehensive catalogue of measures. The programme will run for six years (2014 - 2020) and has a total budget of approximately EUR 70 million.

A special BMBF website provides, among other things, introductory information on the structure of the programme and on participation opportunities.

If you are interested in Horizon 2020 or other EU funding opportunities or are already involved in a project, you can obtain support from various sources. A first contact address is the Research Funding and EU Projects section of FORTEC. There you will be supported with any questions or find suitable contacts.
