Horizon 2020 - water innovation funding opportunities

Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s new programme to support research, development and innovation for academia, research, industry and other bodies.  It will run from 2014 to 2020 and have an estimated budget of €80 billion.  A challenge-based approach covers activities from research to market with a new focus on innovation-related activities, such as piloting, demonstration, test-beds, and support for public procurement and market uptake. Water will be one of the areas covered. The first annual call for proposals will be in early 2014. Further information can be found at the Horizon 2020 website.
