Horizon 2020 at the University of Bologna: commitment and successes

Commitment and results obtained by the University of Bologna on 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 are the focal points of the programme.

The aim was to ensure that Europe could produce world-class science and technology able to stimulate economic growth, by involving scientists and the European and global industry in finding solutions to modern-day challenges, improving citizens’ lives, protecting the environment, and helping the European industry to become more sustainable and competitive.
