  • H2020 Objectives -Respond to the economic crisis investing in future jobs and growth -Addressing peoples’ concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environment -Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology The Commission unveiled a set of proposals on 30 November for Horizon 2020, the new framework programme for research and innovation. This forms part of the set of proposals for all of the Union's spending programmes for the period 2014-20. Horizon 2020 is designed to address these challenges through funding excellent science, technology and innovation. It is central to the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, the Innovation Union flagship to create a knowledge society, and the goal to complete the European Research Area as a single market for knowledge. The world has changed dramatically over recent years and Europe is faced with a crisis of public debt, low growth and high unemployment. Smart investments in research and innovation are vital to create jobs and put Europe back on a path to growth. At the same time Europe face major challenges such as ageing populations and the depletion of natural resources. This affects all of our lives directly, for example through high health care costs, rising energy prices, congested roads, and threats to security.
  • Horizon 2020 represents a break from the past, in order to meet the new challenges and opportunities. It brings together all EU level research and innovation funding into a single programme, covering the current 7th research Framework Programme, the innovation activities from the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, as well as EU funding to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. These currently separate activities have been integrated to allow seamless funding of research and innovation, allowing innovative projects to be supported from the laboratory to commercial exploitation. Previously separate activities have been brought together to focus on the societal challenges such as health, clean energy and transport. All forms of innovation will be included, including innovation in services and social innovation. Support will also be given to develop the market and legal frameworks for innovations to be deployed, such as on public procurement, standard setting and regulations. Horizon 2020 will also provide a major simplification, with a single set of rules, less paperwork, and faster funding. The aim is to attract the best researchers and innovators regardless of where they are located.

    6. 6. Shaping a Connected Digital Future The overriding objective should be the "democratisation" of the network A seamless information access, knowledge sharing and communication space Conducive to individual and social empowerment… and to smart growth Addressing societal challenges should lead to innovation and growth opportunities for the ICT sector and beyond The upcoming integrated ubiquitous infrastructure will be a game changer Global standards and open innovation are key for users and industry alike •HORIZON 2020 is a unique opportunity to meet these ambitions
