The final calls are also bringing with Horizon Europe Programme for 2021-2027.

We will also hold many autumn training courses to help you better prepare for 2020 and beyond. Among others:

The European Commission today announced how it will spend the last and biggest annual tranche - €11 billion - of the EU research and innovation funding programme Horizon 2020 in the final year of the programme.
