Horizon 2020 approval by Parliament a boost for European research and innovation


The European Commission welcomed the European Parliament's adoption of Horizon 2020, the next EU research and innovation programme. With a budget of nearly EUR 80 billion euro over seven years, Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU research programme yet, and one of the biggest publicly funded worldwide. It is also one of only very few programmes in the next EU budget to see a strong increase in funding – a nearly 30 per cent jump in real terms over the current Seventh Framework Programme.

Fuel Cells and Hydrogen top Europe’s Innovation Investment Package


On the 10th July 2013, FCH JU welcomed the European Commission’s proposal to renew and strengthen the Joint Undertaking. As part of the package(€ 22 billion) to be invested in innovation for sectors that deliver high quality jobs, this strengthening plan, built upon the success of the first generation of the programme from 2008-2013, aim to boost even more the competitiveness of EU industry.   Some 150 projects and over 430 industry and research organisations have won support under the annual, competitive calls for proposals issued by the current programme of FCH JU.
