Elisabetta Delle Donne, Pixel (Italy)


This paper presents the main current European programmes managed by the European Commission, providing funding opportunities in the field of education, training, research and innovation.

The paper starts with an introduction to the Europe 2020 strategy that the European Union is pursuing to create the conditions for a smarter, sustainable and inclusive growth and that provides the background to the funding Programmes in the period 2014-2020.

The paper then focuses its attention on two funding Programmes that can be interesting for scientist and researchers to finance their researches, their mobility and their career development:

·         Erasmus+ providing funding opportunities in the field of Education, Training, Youth and Sport

·         Horizon 2020, the new 70 billion budget Programme, for promoting investments in Research and Innovation

The paper presented each Programme’s main objectives, funding schemes and budget.

Examples of initiatives already funded by the European Commission in the field of science are provided.
