Calls to be opened in the new two-year period (2016-2017) of Horizon 2020 have been officially announced. As RPDTTD, we have been distributing draf work programs of various themes throughout the summer. On 14 October 2015, the European Commission has officially announced the adaptation of the new two-year Horizon 2020 Work Programme. Please click here for the gateway page of these documents. If you want to check out the forthcoming calls, go to the "Participant Portal" here.

For the next two years, about 16 billlion Euros will be distributed for research and innovation projects.

Brief reminders: Most of these calls are cooperative, that is, consortia requires the representation of at least 3 European countries (including Türkiye). In consortia, one institution becomes the Coordinator, and others join as Partners. Both RPDTTD and TUBITAK offer support services to aid your proposal development efforts.
