Horizon 2020 to be an evolution, not revolution, in research funding

Horizon 2020, the next EU research funding programme for 2014-20, looks like it will maintain the core elements of its predecessor Framework 7.

The proposed €80-billion (£68m) programme, up from about €53bn in 2007-13, would split its funds between three main headings: excellent science (€24.6bn); industrial leadership (€17.9bn); and societal challenges (€31.7bn).

The proposal also includes a single, revised set of rules to simplify funding applications, reporting and auditing for the programme.
