Next Horizon 2020 Calls Coming Soon

The second round of Horizon 2020 calls, covering the period 2016-2017, are expected to be published in either September or October 2015, according to a newsletter of the European Union delegation to the African Union.

Calls will focus on Horizon 2020’s three pillars: Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership, and Societal Challenges. 

Early draft versions of Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2 calls are already circulating. 

“The texts of the work programmes are being finalised and in many cases draft versions are accessible online through third parties," says the EU delegation newsletter. “Final texts will contain some significant changes, so it is imperative to refer to the final versions upon publication on the Participant Portal before applying.”

EURIDA Research Management, a consultancy firm based in Berlin, Germany, has posted the draft work programmes on their website to guide researchers in developing their project ideas for the upcoming calls.

“It is important to understand that the draft work programmes are working documents. As such, calls indicated in the documents may not appear in the final versions of the Work Programme 2016-2017, and likewise, new calls may be introduced,” EURIDA advises.
