By William New, Intellectual Property Watch on 18/01/2012 @ 8:47 pm
The European Union Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science today introduced the US policy community to Horizon 2020, the large-scale new multi-year research and innovation funding programme the EU is preparing to undertake.
The programme, targeting the years 2013-2020, departs from the past seven 7-year EU research initiatives by being more of an economic policy measure, reflecting the need to spark growth and jobs, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn  told a gathering in Washington, DC.
The Commission’s plan for Horizon 2020 was adopted in November with a budget of about €80 billion euros.
The plan has three pillars: raising excellence in science, attracting investment, and addressing societal needs.
The commissioner’s speech is available here .
