Practical Guide to EU-Funding Oppotunities for Research and Innovation

This new Guide provides potential recipients of EU funding for research and innovation with the practical information they need to access this funding. It also provides decision-makers with a full picture of all the funding opportunities available until 2013. The complexity of the present landscape has led the authors to propose to bring together the full range of research and innovation financing instruments within a common strategic framework under the future multi-annual financial framework. With a common set of simplified rules and procedures and a single set of funding instruments, it offers the potential to make EU funding more effective and increase its impact, while making it easier to access for participants. The common strategic framework for research and innovation, together with revamped structural funds while allow us to swiftly move forward with the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy.
