WU-EU-Wiki-Website

In this Wiki you will find information on EU-funded projects, from proposal writing, to operational cycles, budgeting and reporting.

There are a variety of EU funding programmes available for researchers at the WU. This Wiki focusses mainly on Horizon 2020, the EU's funding programme for research and innovation. However, you will also find information on Erasmus+, COST, and other, smaller programmes, in the relevant sections of this Wiki.

Please note, however, that where not stated otherwise, the information applies to Horizon 2020. Where relevant, the Wiki also includes information of H2020’s predecessor programme, the Framework Programme 7 (FP7).
