The new Framework Programme for Research & Innovation of the European Union, called ‘Horizon Europe’ is expected to start beginning of May 2021 for a seven-year long period.
‘Horizon Europe’ is one of the largest ever funding instruments (€ 95.5 Billion). Mostly applied research and innovation will be funded under ‘Horizon Europe’, covering a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines.
Researchers from Sri Lanka can participate in ‘Horizon Europe’ and can benefit from the funding it provides, as it was the case with the ending predecessor Programme ‘Horizon 2020’: Researchers and research entities from Sri Lanka took already part in 5 grants receiving an amount of approx. € 1.5 Million for their involvement (current, not final data).
