Horizon 2020 was the largest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 helped to achieve this with its emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal was to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removed barriers to innovation and made it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
