Horizon 2020
The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation

FET Open

FET Open supports the early-stages of the science and technology research and innovation around new ideas towards radically new future technologies. It also funds coordination and support actions for such high-risk forward looking research to prosper in Europe.

Research and Innovation Actions (RIA)

FET Open calls for collaborative research and innovation actions that satisfy the FET Open 'gatekeepers':

  • ambitious scientific and technological breakthrough goal,
  • foundational character,
  • high degree of novelty,
  • high-risk,
  • long-term vision,
  • deep synergistic interdisciplinary approach

The constantly high number of proposal submissions (2104 in 2014/15) underlines the fierce competition for funding in the programme. Only truly excellent proposals have a chance to get funding (read the blog post from Timo Hallantie, Head of FET Open Unit: "What it takes to succeed in FET Open").

 

Coordination and Support Actions (CSA)

FET-Open also facilitates Coordination and Support Actions (CSA). The goal is to create the best possible conditions for responsible collaborative research on FET. This is done by strengthening new FET research communities and by stimulating the take-up of FET research results. The impact of the programme on science and society is also assessed.

 

In addition, the new FET Open CSA call FET Innovation Launchpad aims at funding further innovation related work, i.e. activities which were not scheduled to be funded by the original projects. The funding will be used  to verify and substantiate the innovation potential of ideas arising from FET projects and to support the next steps in bringing them closer to the market.
