Public stakeholder consultation – interim evaluation of Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the biggest European Union Research and Innovation programme and the largest in the world providing nearly €80 billion of funding available until the year 2020. Its main objectives are referred to inducement of breakthroughs and discoveries by transferring innovative ideas from the laboratory to the market. By offering funds for promoting the scientific and technological excellence, it aims at lifting the European Union’s economic competitiveness and addressing the very important societal challenges.

The Horizon 2020 programme has just entered its 4th year and time for midterm evaluations has come. Eurodoc welcomes and supports the initiative of the European Commission in public stakeholder consultations and is willing to provide its contribution to this appraisal. We believe that Eurodoc opinions will bring to light early career researchers’ concerns and priorities and will make a valuable input to the future discussions on the implementation of EU research and innovation funding.
