European funding for innovation and opportunities in Luxembourg
Every year, the European Commission (EC) co-finances innovative investment projects in the European Union (EU). It makes direct financial contributions in the form of cash grants and public contracts to support projects and organizations that promote and help implement EU interests or policies. The 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) covers a set of funding programs that represent Europe’s political priorities for seven years: research and innovation (Horizon 2020), connecting the transport, energy and IT infrastructure of all Member States (Connecting Europe Facility), education (Erasmus+), and competitiveness of Europe’s businesses (COSME) among others.
Interested parties may apply by participating in calls for projects, which consist in financing project proposals that address specific thematic priorities defined in each funding program.
