Horizon 2020

Overview of Structure of Horizon 2020

According to the proposal, Horizon 2020 will be based around a single specific programme which will consist of three separate pillars, addressing key priorities where there is clear Union added value.

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) also falls under Horizon 2020, it will be closely linked to the societal challenges, but separate in the sense that EIT activities will be outlined in the EIT‟s Specific Innovation Agenda (SIA).
