Research and innovation funding is often awarded following calls for project proposals. The calls specify the topics and actions for which funding is available, the criteria that must be fulfilled, the deadline for submitting proposals, and so on. Proposals are evaluated and the best ones receive funding.
Horizon 2020 offers a large variety of funding opportunities for research and innovation activities through calls for proposals that are set out in the Horizon 2020 work programme. On the Participant Portal (PP) you can find a list of calls published by several European programmes – including notably Horizon 2020.
You can filter the calls that interest you in the relevant programme part, like ICT or Health. If you need personalised advice on open and forthcoming calls, please contact the National Contact Point (NCP).
