By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth with its emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
Horizon 2020 is open to any legal entity from Member States and from Associated countries.
In 1996, Israel was the first non-European country to be associated to the EU's Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development and since then has been an active and successful partner in these programmes.
Over the past 20 years, thousands of Israeli scientists and companies have participated in the EU Framework programmes. But it is beyond an issue of numbers – the exposure for both academia and industry to cutting edge research and the links to leading institutions and to key actors in the private sector are invaluable contributions to both Israel and the EU's research worlds and economies.
