The latest EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation is called Horizon 2020.

The program will fund European Research and Innovation ventures between the years 2014 and 2020 with 70,2 billion euros. Through Horizon 2020, the European Commission’s aim is to generate growth and new jobs in Europe while improving the status of European companies in the global competition.

The participation of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Horizon 2020-projects is important for the European Union. The framework programme offers SMEs a new way to grow and internationalise with the help of a cooperation network. Horizon 2020 contains novel and supportive financial instruments, which expedite innovation and commercialization.

It is desirable for companies to network in joint projects in various EU countries but individual SMEs can also apply funding for their own project. However, networking and international cooperation can often expedite the entry to more lucrative markets.
