Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe

The current EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, is structured to support a wide range of projects from basic research to innovative product development. It provides funding to both individual researchers and collaborations between science and industry. Horizon Europe, which is to succeed Horizon 2020 on January 1, 2021, will also pursue this objective.

The European Union Section of Division 4.2, Management of Third-Party Funds, is happy to assist you in applying for and implementing EU projects. Our focus is on the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020. We will also be happy to advise you on the successor program Horizon Europe, which is set to begin January 1, 2021. In addition, we can offer you targeted information and advice with respect to both the European Research Council, or ERC for short, and the European Institute for Technology, or EIT-KIC.

Are you planning to coordinate an EU project? Our EU project management team is happy to support you in the application process and assist you with administrative management in case of approval.

As a contact point for legal and financial questions we are ready to assist you with financial administration and contracting of EU projects.

Through our seminars and trainings we will gladly share exciting recent developments in EU research funding with you. Furthermore, we have compiled much helpful information for you about EU projects funded by the Horizon 2020 program on our subpages.
