The FNR is pleased to extend an invitation from the European Commission for citizens and organisations to take part in a public stakeholder consultation, which is to feed into the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020, the EU’s €77 billion research and innovation funding scheme running from 2014 to 2020.
This interim evaluation will help improve the functioning of Horizon 2020, and will also be an important element in preparations of a next EU research and innovation programme.
Until when is the consultation?
The public stakeholder consultation on the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 is open now, and will close on Tuesday, 15 January 2017. A parallel consultation on the Euratom Research and Training Programme has also been launched with the same closing date. Additionally, a stakeholder consultation on the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) will run until Sunday, 20 November 2016, and a consultation on public-public and public-private partnerships under Horizon 2020 is also due to be launched in the near future. The interim evaluation will also draw on existing surveys and consultations, including on simplification and on a European Innovation Council.
