Horizon 2020 to splash €700 m on photonics research and development
52% boost for EC investment compared to FP7, as photonics and organic electronics projects move center stage.
In the last few months of 2013, the Council of the EU and the European Parliament have finalized the budget for Horizon 2020 – The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. This €70 billion (at 2011 prices) Europe-wide funding and development plan succeeds Framework Programme 7 on 1 January 2014 as the main financial mechanism to support research and development across all disciplines – including a substantial boost for photonics, expected to total at least €100m per year through to 2020.
