The new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation will be called Horizon 2020 and will cover the years 2014-2020. The ultimate aim is to maximise the contribution of EU funded research and innovation to sustainable growth and jobs. The European Commission is expected to adopt the draft legislative proposal for Horizon 2020 on 30 November 2011. Discussions will follow over the next year with the other two co-legislators: the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament.
