In total, some €3 billion in funding will be available under the "SME Instrument" over the next seven years as part of Horizon 2020, the EU's new research and innovation programme. Funding is competitive and project proposals have to be in line with call topics published on the Participant Portal, the gateway to EU research funding. In 2014, some €250 million of funding will be available under the SME Instrument's permanently open call.
