Monitoring the Evolution and Benefits of Responsible Research and Innovation (MoRRI) was a project tasked with implementing a monitoring system for responsible research and innovation (RRI). This executive summary of the project, in English and French, provides a rapid-glance overview of the main messages emanating from this cutting-edge project.
This report analyses the country participation patterns in Horizon 2020 as well as the underlying causes for the low participation of a number of EU Member States and Associated Countries. It highlights the key trends in bridging the research and innovation gap and in the research and innovation performance of the EU Member States and their regions, underlining the uneven convergence progress.
This report considers issues related to the criteria and indicators that might be used to define targets for future “Widening Actions” designed to address inequality in research and innovation performance across EU Member States. Under Horizon 2020, this has been the focus of the “Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation” Work Programme.
The conference launched the dialogue on a new vision for Public-Private Partnerships with the industry, post 2020. Main messages: need to digitise European industries, focus on more systemic innovations and develop a strong rationale for partnerships, involving stakeholders, workers and citizens.
This publication is the final report of a study that contributed to the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020. It collected information and data on the overall development of synergies between Horizon 2020 and European Structural and Investment Funds. The study provided evidence that there is a legal basis for synergies in place and that there are overall implementation guidelines for all the institutional synergy actors involved.
The interim evaluation of FP7 (November 2010) identified that some Member States, mainly those that joined the EU after 2004, had low participation rates in FP7 projects. Widening actions under the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation part of Horizon 2020 address the causes of low participation by fully exploiting the potential of Europe’s talent pool.
Many of the Horizon 2020 calls under societal challenge 2 require projects to apply the “multi-actor approach”. This approach which brings farmers, scientists and other actors together leads to solutions which answer real needs and are more easily applied on the field. This brochure presents the benefits of this approach, some examples of running H2020 projects and explains where to find project results. Inspiration for future calls!

REA manages large parts of Horizon 2020 as well as of the Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration activities (FP7).
This midterm assessment, part of the overall interim evaluation of Horizon 2020, looked into Horizon 2020’s 'InnovFin' financial instruments and considered priorities for the remainder of the 2014-20 programming period.
The main objective of the study is to evaluate the performance and to assess the impact of the Eurostars-1 Joint Programme in terms of new products, processes or services introduced into the market two years after the project’s completion. The analysis is also aimed at providing concrete recommendations and any other useful comments on how to better implement the Eurostars-2 programme.
