Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme available over 7 years (2014-2020). This programme promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this with its emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
Horizon 2020 is open to everyone, with a simple structure that reduces red tape and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach makes sure new projects get off the ground quickly – and achieve results faster.
POLIS University has participated in two Horizon 2020 projects; this can be considered not only an achievement, but also a responsibility for the institution.
Project Title: Traffic Safety Cultures and the Safe Systems Approach – Towards a Cultural Change Research and Innovation Agenda for Road Safety
Project Title: OIKOnet: A Global Multidisciplinary Network on Housing Research and Learning
