Horizon 2020 at the University of Bologna: commitment and successes

The commitment and results achieved by the University of Bologna in the Horizon 2020 European framework programme.

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 has made available nearly €80 billion in funding over a 7-year period (2014-2020) – in addition to the national public and private investments it has attracted – in order to achieve breakthrough discoveries and results, to be taken from the lab to the market.

Excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges were the focal points of the programme.

The purpose was to ensure that Europe would produce world-class science and technology capable of boosting economic growth by involving European and global scientists and industries.

The University of Bologna has accepted the European challenge and developed strategic and organisational guidelines to enhance its competencies and its participation in the Horizon 2020 calls, in all research areas in which it is involved on a daily basis.

Thanks to its research teams, supporting staff and its network of relations with academia, the industry, civil society and the local area, the University participated in Horizon 2020 and achieved significant results: more than 300 funded projects, over €140 million in European funding and a network of more than 2,700 partners.
