Horizon 2020 - the new European framwork programme for research and innovation
– possibilities for automation and embedded systems

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness

The presentationen will be held by RECO (Division for Research Coordination), at Mälardalen Univeristy, and will focus on funding possibilities for automation and embedded systems.
