In 2011 the EU Heads of State and Government called on the European Commission to bring together all of the EU’s previous research and innovation funding under a single common strategic framework – Horizon 2020 (H2020), which is the biggest EU research and innovation programme ever with nearly ai??i??80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020).
The goal of H2020 is to ensure that Europe produces world-class science, to remove barriers to innovation and to make it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
Yo!Mag asked young scientists in the first European Capital on Innovation – Barcelona, what do they think about H2020.
ai???One of the main weak points of science globally is the lack of connectivity between public and private sectors. Iai??i??m fairly confident that Horizon 2020 will tackle that problem with a notable effect, both increasing the level of scientific quality and economic stability in the field,ai??? PhD Research Fellow at Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona Erik Abner, who is originally from Estonia, says.
PhD Research Fellow at the Centre for Genomic Regulation, Luis Zapata, who is originally from Chile, thinks that H2020 should be monitored and followed up every year, and should make results accessible to every participant in order to improve the level of science. ai???Horizon 2020 is a good test to evaluate the impact of global efforts to make science closer to industry and society,ai??? he says.
Erik Abner believes that having an established system for communication and public funding will increase the funding by private investors in research, thus providing a more stable and varied job market for the scientist. ai???Increasing the stability and variety of career options in the private sector will surely improve the motivation and constancy for the next generation of researchers,ai??? he says.
