Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020). With its dedicated budget of around EUR 77 billion over seven years, Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme of its kind ever.
“This second Monitoring Report on Horizon 2020 focuses on the implementation of the second year of the Work Programme 2014-2015, which was adopted in December 2013. It reports in detail the findings on calls for proposals with call deadline in 2015 and includes updated
numbers for calls for proposals which closed in 2014, describing trends in the different sections.
It helps identifying the most important issues related to performance as measured by the Key Performance Indicators, implementation aspects and participation trends, providing data for all priorities and specific objectives of Horizon 2020. The Report pays special attention to monitor progress with respect to the cross-cutting issues. It provides information also on the activities of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) as well as of the Euratom Research and Training Programme. Moreover, given the significant results and impacts that FP7 projects can still produce, the Annual Monitoring Report includes a section dedicated to results of ongoing FP7 projects.
Evidence provided in the successive Annual Monitoring Reports will generate factual data that will feed into the Interim and Ex-post evaluations of Horizon 2020.”
