Since 1984, European Union has implemented its research, development and innovation activities within Framework Programmes and the 9th programme will start in January 2021 under the name of Horizon Europe. The programme will be carried out with a budget of 95.5 billion Euros between 2021-2027 with the aims of strengthening the scientific and technological foundations of the EU; increasing its innovation capacity, competitiveness and employment; meeting the priorities of its citizens and maintaining the existence of socioeconomic models and values. Legal entities from EU and Associated countries like Turkey can participate in the programmes. While individual applications can be made for programs such as Marie Skłodowska-Curie and ERC, participation of consortiums of at least 3 different EU and Associated countries are expected for Cooperation Programs.
As Sabancı University, we have started our preparations before the Programme opens.
We are organizing a series of Information Days, each focusing on different research areas for our Faculty members and reseachers. At the opening, our dean, vice dean and directors discuss the performance and projects of SU within the 8th Framework Programme, Horizon 2020.
Afterwards, we present Horizon Europe draft work programmes and calls, TÜBİTAK supports and awards, ERA-NETs, international networks and partner search mechanisms. At the end of each event, researchers who have submitted EU applications share their experiences.
