About Horizon 2020 Funding

With a total budget of €79bn, Horizon 2020 is the largest ever EU Research and Innovation funding programme. It has an emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges, with a simpler structure than previous programmes - reducing red tape and time so that participants can focus on what is really important.

The 'Societal Challenges' pillar of Horizon 2020 has a budget in the region of €30bn, and has many areas of relevance to Agri-Food, Bioscience and Biotechnology (e.g. Climate, Transport, Food Security, Blue Growth etc.).
