Requesting EU-funded R&I projects

7 Minutes


One more year, the European Project Horizon 2020 is here to help various Research and Innovation projects in terms of exposure and communications.

But first things first.

What is Horizon 2020?

Horizon 2020 is the largest EU Research and Innovation program worldwide, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020). Thanks to this program, more breakthroughs and discoveries are possible, and cutting-edge ideas are brought from the lab to the market.

This year, Horizon 2020 wants to support your project and help you to reach a larger audience. To accomplish this, the organization has opened a communication channel across its network of social media to complement applicants’ outreach activities.

This aims to build up a new portfolio of project videos that showcase the impact that EU funded projects have on our daily lives. Your video could appear in the following social media networks and gain an enormous exposure:

How can you participate?

To be able to access the program, you will have to make a video of a maximum of three minutes explaining the impact your research has, or could potentially have, within the society. Such a video needs to be targeted to a general audience.

The video should include a background or outline of a societal challenge and showcase how your research is going to overcome or improve such a difficulty. Once this video is created, you will have to upload it on YouTube using as a Title the Project Acronym + description (e.g BINGO, Bringing INnovation to onGOing water management) and provide a short description of the theme/content.

Requesting EU funded R

Besides, you will have to acknowledge EU funding by stating the Project ID number and include information about the program you received funding for (FP6, FP7, Horizon 2020, etc.)

To ensure the video has been uploaded properly, we recommend sending the organization an email to [email protected].

You will need to include the following in your email:

  • a link to your video on YouTube
  • the Project Acronym
  • a short title/description of the theme, content
  • the Project ID e.g. Project ID: 123456
