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.
The H2E program contributes to the development of a sustainable industry and competitive hydrogen energy. The 19 partners of the program, supported by Bpifrance, wish to share with you the first results of the work.
