Horizon 2020 - Collaborative Projects

H2020 supports Collaborative Projects between companies, universities, and other partners, who come together in project proposals addressing grand societal challenges or strategic industrial technologies.
Collaborative Projects

The Collaborative Projects are by far the largest program area within H2020 with a total budget of 50 billion Euros in 2014-2020. 

Commercial opportunities

Collaborative Projects in H2020 allow companies to develop and commercialize their new products and services together with European partners. Also, they allow companies to link up with leading knowledge networks in their industries. In funded Collaborative Projects, participating companies typically obtain 70 % support for their project costs. For some supported activities, the support is 100 %. 

Type of activities: R&D, Demonstration, Market Uptake

Typically, Collaborative Projects require participation from at least three partners from different EU or associated countries. Most supported projects have 5-8 partners, and a budget of 2-10 million Euros. Support for Collaborative Projects is offered within predefined themes that are published by the EU Commission on a running basis. An exact match with a theme is a prerequisite for obtaining funding.
