EU programmes

The most important pillar of the European Union for funding research, technology and innovation is the "Horizon 2020" programme.

Innovative and international companies and R&D institutes benefit from Horizon 2020 when developing their project as the programme gives them support at all stages of the innovation process, from basic research through to market launch.

The Enterprise Europe Network EEN helps companies and R&D institutes find and use project partners to carry out joint research and development projects and innovative technologies and R&D results in Europe.

Our service includes:

  • assessing the funding eligibility of your project
  • helping you choose the appropriate funding programme for your project
  • establishing contact with experts at the Tyrolean universities and non-university research institutes
  • establishing contact with business partners

The funding programme team at Standortagentur Tirol is here to help you!

Horizon 2020 the largest transnational programme for research and innovations in the world.

Increase operational R&D with Horizon 2020
Horizon 2020, the current EU programme for research, has nearly 80 billion euros available for research and innovation at an EU level between 2014 and 2020. The financing and funding forms range from basic research through to innovative product development. Horizon 2020 focuses mainly on individual researchers, companies and cooperation between business and science. The most important goals of Horizon 2020, the new research and innovation programme, are excellent research, competitive research and business locations, more innovative products and services as well as simplified regulations.

Horizon 2020 is more focused on business than previous EU programmes. It is also the first time that innovative product developments are being given support. Its funding rate of 100 % for research activities and 70 % for innovation projects also makes it attractive from a financial point of view. Furthermore, the administration has been made significantly easier and the selection procedure has become quicker.

The funding advice team at Standortagentur Tirol is here to help companies find a partner, develop a project and prepare outstanding applications.

All of the latest calls to tender for Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme, can also be found on the European Commission's Participant Portal.
