Funded Horizon 2020 projects

EU Research and Innovation Programme, Horizon 2020, is an important tool for the University. A substantial part of the Univeristy's international research funding comes from Horizon 2020. Our research groups collaborate in many successful H2020 projects both as a coordinator and partner.

Abbreviations of the funding type:

  • RIA = Research and Innovation Action
  • IA = Innovation Action
  • CSA= Coordination and Support Action
  • PCP= Pre-Commercial Procurement
  • MSCA = Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action
  • ERC = European Research Council funding
