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).
