Horizon 2020

Last changed: 18 April 2019

Type of funding: EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation

Cost recovery: Two main models; 1) Research and innovation projects (100% of direct eligible costs + 25% of the direct costs as compensation for indirect costs, 2) innovation activities (70% of direct eligible costs + 25 % as compensation for indirect costs). There are deviations from these main models.

Horizon 2020 is the European Union's program for research and innovation for the years 2014-2020 and has a budget of about 70 billion euros. The program focuses on three parts according to the main priorities for research and innovation for 2020 that the European Commission has taken within the framework of the Europe 2020 Strategy: 1. Excellent science 2. Industrial Leadership 3. Societal Challenges.

Data management plan

When a project proposal has been granted funds from framework program Horizon 2020 a first draft of a Data management plan must be submitted to the Commission within six months. More information on the Data management plan, as well as a template, is available here.

If you have any questions concerning the Data management plan or need help with developing one, please contact the Data Curation Unit på dcu@slu.se
