Results of the Communication on interim evaluation on Horizon 2020


The European Commission has published a Communication that summarizes the results of the evaluation of Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme.

One of the key messages of the evaluation has been that Europe must step up investment in research and innovation in order to maximise impact, while also further refining the success story that is Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme. It also calls for a mission-oriented approach, focusing on cracking specific challenges, as a way of boosting the impact of the programme. Other key messages include the need for an increase in effective engagement of citizens and support for breakthrough innovation. 

The Communication also develops lessons learned from the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 in areas such as international cooperation, synergies with other EU programmes and policies as well as continued efforts to simplify the EU research and innovation support landscape.
