Horizon 2020: Work Programme update for 2017 calls

Policy developments

On Monday 25 July 2016, the European Commission confirmed the calls and other actions of the second year of the two-year work programmes setting out funding opportunities for 2017. Although much remains the same as was announced in the 2016-2017 Work Programme, some important novelties have been introduced. The calls and other actions under the current work programme updates have a budget of €8.5 billion. All the calls and related information are published on the participant portal: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/home.html

The calls targeting Japan are published on the NCP Japan website.

In response to the migration crisis funding is made available to coordinate research communities and make policy recommendations to facilitate labour market integration of migrants. Among the novelties are that the current Open Research Data Pilot will be extended to cover all thematic areas of Horizon 2020, making open research data the default setting. Also new is the use of Data Management Plans (DMPs), detailing what data the project will generate, whether and how it will be made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved.

You can read the full statement from the European Commission on their website.
