Horizon 2020 - first calls
The 2014 calls for proposals under the Horizon 2020 programme have been published. They can be accessed via the EC Participant Portal.
Twelve focus areas
Compared with the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), there are relatively fewer calls and topics. The Work Programme reflects the strong challenge-based approach of Horizon 2020, allowing applicants to have considerable freedom to come up with innovative solutions.
Twelve areas have been identified for special focus in the first Horizon 2020 Work Programme. These areas represent around 15% of the total number of calls covered by the Work Programme and amount to a total 2014 budget of €2 billion.
