HORIZON 2020 in full swing

This brochure provides a snapshot of the programme’s main achievements after three full years of implementation (2014- 2016). For the first time, some early trends can be glimpsed from the year-on-year evolution of key monitoring data such as success rates, SME participation and project evaluation.

The European Commission (EC) has published a new brochure "Horizon 2020 In Full Swing -Three Years On – Key facts and figures 2014-2016". 

This brochure provides a snapshot of the programme’s main achievements after three full years of implementation (2014- 2016). For the first time, some early trends can be glimpsed from the year-on-year evolution of key monitoring data such as success rates, SME participation, and project evaluation. 

Some 55% of applicants are newcomers, and the share of funding awarded to SMEs surpassed the 20% target. Continuing efforts to simplify the programme are paying off, with a shorter average time now taken to sign grants than ever before. 

The quality of applications is also striking – a very high proportion of proposals are assessed as high-quality by independent evaluators. Horizon 2020 would have required an extra EUR 66.3 billion in order to fund all the high-quality proposals received so far.
