Horizon 2020 work programme now available
10 Dec 2013
The draft official work programme for 2014-2015 for Horizon 2020 is now available.
Horizon 2020 is the EU’s new programme for research and innovation. It will run from 2014 to 2020 with a budget of just over €70 billion. Although the work programme has not yet been formally adopted by the Commission, these papers are being made public to provide potential participants with the currently expected main focus of the work programmes.
ECHAMP and other CAM stakeholders were unsuccessful in their campaign to secure specific reference to homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine in the work programme; however this is a broad reaching programme, that may nevertheless offer opportunities to researchers from the CAM sector.
The full scope of the programme can be seen here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/horizon2020/index_en.cfm?pg=h2020-documents
There is a particular focus on Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing, and the specific document can be downloaded here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/horizon2020/pdf/work-programmes/health_draft_work_programme.pdf#view=fit&pagemode=none
