Horizon 2020, the new EU programme for research and innovation

The European Commission published yesterday its Communication on Horizon 2020, the new R&I Framework Programme. It is fully in line with the EU's policy strategies like the Innovation Union or the Digital Agenda. A SME focus is one of the most important new elements. With regard to International Cooperation, the Communication emphasises the promotion of internationall mobility of researchers and innovation staff. The focus of international cooperation in Horizon 2020 will be on cooperation with three major country groupings:

(1) industrialised and emerging economies;
(2) enlargement and neighbourhood countries; and
(3) developing countries.

Horizon 2020 will continue with the principle of general openness, while encouraging reciprocal access to third country programmes.
