What’s in Horizon 2020 for you? What are the new calls and how to apply for funding?
We invite you to the Info Day 2014 in Brussels, on 17 January, to get first-hand information on the new EU funding instrument and to find the answer to these and many other questions.

The Info Day is organised by the Directorate for Biotechnologies, Agriculture, Food to provide full information on the new calls for proposals of Societal Challenge 2 (Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the Bioeconomy) and on the call Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies (LEIT) - Biotechnology.

Societal Challenge 2 covers three calls for proposals under which projects can apply for funding:

  • Sustainable Food Security
  • Blue Growth
  • Innovative Sustainable and Inclusive Bioeconomy

In addition, the call under Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies will also be presented:

  • LEIT - Biotechnology

Participation in the Info Day is free of charge but registration is compulsory.

Registration is now open until 13 January and applications will be considered on a “first come, first served” basis.
Group registrations are not possible and neither is it possible to register several persons with the same e-mail address.

Horizon 2020 is the new EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, succeeding FP7.
Running from 2014 to 2020 with a budget of just over €70 billion, Horizon 2020 is part of the drive to create new growth and jobs in Europe.

Horizon 2020 reflects the policy priorities of the Europe 2020 strategy and addresses major concerns shared by citizens in Europe and elsewhere.
