ICT calls of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2018-2020 to be presented at ICT Proposers’ Day 2017

Horizon 2020 is the EU's biggest research and innovation funding programme with an overall budget of EUR 77 billion. Its Work Programme for the last phase (2018-2020) has been published on 27th October 2017 and has an overall budget of EUR 30 billion, out of which an estimated EUR 6 billion will be spent on research and innovation in the ICT sector.

ICT proposers’ Day 2017 is specifically dedicated to the ICT related calls of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 (WP). During the event, the different calls for proposals will be presented and participants will be advised on how to best answer those calls.

As one of the main political drivers for the design of Horizon 2020, digitisation is present in many areas of the WP 2018-2020. EUR 6 billion will be allocated to ICT related projects covering the full innovation chain, from basic research to market uptake.

The three main pillars of the Work Programme, Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT), Excellent Science, and Societal Challenges, cover a broad range of ICT topics - e.g. CybersecurityeInfrastructuresHigh Performance ComputingEuropean Open Science Cloud and Digitising European Industry. To each of these topics, ICT Proposers’ Day 2017 will dedicate networking sessions and information stands.

The European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot will be a new feature of the 2018-2020 work programme bringing together existing instruments such as the SME InstrumentHorizon prizesFET-Open and Fast Track to Innovation. As a bottom-up measure, the EIC will promote close-to-market innovation activities and support innovative firms and entrepreneurs to scale up their businesses rapidly at European and global levels. The SME Instrument and Fast Track to Innovation sessions at ICT Proposers' Day will provide interested proposers more information on these programmes and present inspirational success stories.
