KTN provides advice and support for UK companies that want to engage with Horizon 2020.


What is Horizon 2020?

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever. It promises breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from lab to market. It started in 2014 and will run until 2020.

  • Funding
    It has nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years. It will also help attract private investment money.
  • Collaboration
    Horizon 2020 provides many opportunities for UK businesses to collaborate on research projects. The programme will help them access new markets by building new supply chains and relationships with multinational partners. The collaboration is important – it is not just about funding.
