Booklet: H2020 focus areas for 2018-2020


For the last three years of its duration, the EU's Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020 Work Programme focuses on fewer topics with bigger budgets, directly supporting the Commission’s political priorities. These four Focus Areas for 2018 - 2020 represent a combined budget of € 7 billion: (i) Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future, (ii) Connecting economic and environmental gains – the Circular Economy, (iii) Digitising and transforming European industry and services, and (iv) Boosting the effectiveness of the Security Union.

The European Commission has now published four dedicated booklets presenting these four priority areas and the contributions made to them from various programme parts to pursue a common objective and create sustained impact.
