Horizon 2020 Monitoring Report 2015

The second Annual Monitoring Report covers Horizon 2020 calls closed in 2015, comparing them with the results of 2014. It analyses implementation, allocation of funding and participation per EU member state, Associated Countries to Horizon 2020 and third countries. Evidence from the report will feed into the ongoing interim evaluation of Horizon 2020.

Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme, is attracting more and more researchers and innovators. In 2015 there was an increase in proposals by 25% compared to 2014, especially coming from businesses, whose number of applications increased by almost 27%. Almost 50 % of participants are newcomers, many of which are small and medium-sized companies.

The full Report is available in the attachments.
