Horizon 2020 is allocating almost €80 billion to research and innovation over 7 years (from 2014 to 2020). This money is distributed throughout various scientific divisions and provides a plethora of opportunities for scientists, not only within the EU but also throughout the world.
The magnitude of the Horizon 2020 Programme can, however, make the potential opportunities and openings offered to scientists, difficult to navigate.
This short course will highlight some of the EU funding opportunities offered to scientists at different career levels and the tools available to help them manage both the funding applications and projects. Following this, a scientist who has worked on a Horizon 2020 evaluation panel will speak about some of the best and worst things that scientists do in their funding applications.
The session will conclude by outlining some of the likely changes to EU research funding that the upcoming Horizon Europe framework programme will bring.
This session is open to all EGU General Assembly participants and is relevant for all divisions.
