Welcome to MSC R&D’s Guide to Horizon 2020

If you are a small- or medium-sized enterprise (SME) with a requirement for R&D funding in the future and would like to know more about what Horizon 2020 may be able to offer you, then this website is for you …

MSC R&D recognises that, whilst the Horizon 2020 programme is a significant potential source of R&D funding for SMEs, navigating the official web sites and understanding what suitable funding is available, when it is available and how to access it, is not that easy!

To help you, and to introduce our expertise and services in this area, we have created this guide to Horizon 2020.

The purpose of this guide is to:

  • Help you to better understand the Horizon 2020 programme and decide whether it is suitable for you
  • Provide guidance on how to identify appropriate calls
  • Provide guidance on how to make an application
  • Provide links to key official documents
  • Provide updates on current and forthcoming calls
  • Provide more in-depth support (through our Resources facility)
