Horizon 2020: New calls for proposals!

Horizon 2020 is the new EU funding programme for research and innovation running from 2014 to 2020 with a €70 billion budget. The first calls for proposals for Horizon 2020 are envisaged for December 2013. Its simplified rules and submission and grant management tools should facilitate participants' tasks.
For practical guidance, see the H2020 online manual.<http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/funding/guide.html>
Another important priority of the Commission is to ensure gender<http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/index.html> is embedded in the design of Horizon 2020 project proposals!

“ An in-depth understanding of men and women's needs, behaviours and attitudes contributes to improve the scientific quality and societal relevance of the produced knowledge, technology and/or innovation. It also leads to produce goods and services better suited to potential markets.
Applicants are encouraged to develop a gender dimension in their projects whenever relevant. A topic is considered gender relevant when it concerns individuals of groups of persons and/or when its findings may affect individuals or groups”

Please note that there are three topics especially focusing on "promoting gender equality in research and innovation":

  *   GERI-1-2014: Innovative approach to communication encouraging girls to study science<http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/topics/2411-geri-1-2014.html>
  *   GERI-4-2014: Support to research organisations to implement gender equality plans<http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/topics/2413-geri-4-2014.html>
  *   GERI-2-2014: Impact of gender diversity on Research & Innovation<http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/topics/2706-geri-2-2014.html>
