Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
Horizon Europe is a planned 7-year European Union scientific research initiative meant to succeed the current Horizon 2020 program. The European Commission drafted and approved a plan for Horizon Europe to raise EU science spending levels by 50 percent to approximately €100 billion over the years 2021-2027.
U.S. entities may participate in research proposals as partners and are eligible for funding under the category "Health, demographic change and wellbeing" and where they can justify their request for funding by contributing something unique and outstanding, e.g., BioXFEL (X-ray Free Electron Lasers).
