The Vision2020 Platform:
Vision2020 is a collaboration platform for European research organisations and companies wishing to participate in the Horizon 2020 European Union funding programme. Vision2020 has:
- Communities of researchers and companies that collaborate together in "clusters". These are groups of member organisations that are organised to match Horizon 2020's structure. Each cluster contributes towards the Horizon 2020 programme and acts as a platform for forming consortia and launching successful proposals;
- A group of European research and innovation specialists forming a "policy hub". This is a credible group of experts that discuss and advise on Horizon 2020 matters at both the programme and policy level;
- Events and platforms encouraging small to medium sized enterprises and 'blue chip' companies to connect and collaborate with world-leading research organisations.
The research and technology (RTO) organisations participating as members of Vision2020: The Horizon Network are a select group of excellent organisations that are active in European research & innovation. Our SME membership, on the other hand, is completely open and available to any small to medium sized company.
