Horizon 2020 (H2020) is the European Union (EU) funding programme for research and innovation running from 2014 to 2020 with a €76 billion budget. H2020 aims to enhance EU international research cooperation and Canadian Universities are encouraged to participate in partnerships with European institutions.
The EU-Canada joint research priorities have been identified as aeronautics and space, health, information and communication technology, agriculture and food, and arctic and marine science.
All projects must be led by a European institution. Canadian institutions eligibility to participate varies by program and specific funding opportunity. Researchers are encouraged to consult the up-to-date list of Horizon 2020 program funding opportunities to assess if a specific opportunity could be a good fit with their research program and review their existing networks and collaborations with European institutions.
