European projects

Horizon 2020 is the new Research and Innovation Framework Program of the European Commission for the 2014-2020 period. It brings together in a single program the EU investment in research and innovation and it establishes three strategic objectives: increasing and spreading the level of basic research, facing the great challenges of society and maximizing competitiveness and the impact on the production system. H2020 is structured around three priorities that are directly linked to these objectives: Exellent Science, Societal Challenges and Industrial Leadership. H2020 is different from the previous framework programs also with regards to procedures and evaluation criteria. To coordinate and support researchers in participating in European calls for proposals, in 2013, the INFN established the External Funds Service.
