The Access to risk finance section under the Industrial Leadership pillar of Horizon 2020 Framework Programme will be based on the same principles as under FP7 but the objectives and the scope of the actions proposed will be much broader and more ambitious. In order to best adapt the proposed new instruments, which will partly be a continuation of the existing ones, to the needs of the market external experts have been asked to provide their opinions and recommendations to Commission proposals.
