The final version of the Horizon 2020 2016-2017 research plan was adopted the previous week and is now available via the H2020 participant portal. The European Commission will boost competitiveness, by investing almost €16 billion in research and innovation projects in the next two years under Horizon 2020.
In line with Commissioner Moedas’ strategic priorities, “Open Science, Open Innovation, Open to the World,” the new Work Programme offers funding opportunities through a range of calls for proposals, public procurements and other actions covering nearly 600 topics. The main emphasis is on large scale pilots with a cross-sectorial approach.
WssTP has made a thorough analysis of all available H2020 2016-2017 Work Programmes and has identified 94 calls with a potential link to water. A brief overview of these water-relevant calls has become available to all WssTP members through the platform’s online networking tool, WssTP Observatory.
