Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the EU Research and Innovation programme with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020).

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness.

The four main priorities for transport research under Horizon 2020 are:

  1. Making transport more sustainable: resource-efficient transport that respects the environment.
  2. Making transport and transport systems seamless: better mobility, less congestion, greater safety and security.
  3. Keeping transport competitive: the European transport industry as a global leader.
  4. Making transport research responsive: socio-economic research and forward-looking activities for policy-making.
