Horizon 2020 European programming and ANR actions – how do they interconnect?

"Horizon 2020", the European Union's framework programme for research and innovation for the 2014-2020 period was launched in France on 16th December by Geneviève Fioraso, Minister for Higher Education and Research. Europe is a priority for ANR, whose remit includes increasing the visibility and influence of French research on the international stage. ANR has rendered a large part of its Work Programme 2014 consistent with the European Commission's funding programme, and more broadly with the European strategic agenda, while ensuring that its funding does not overlap or duplicate European funding.

Bilateral collaborations 2014 with Germany, Austria and Switzerland

In order to simplify and streamline scientific collaborations, create research funding areas without borders and thus contribute to the construction of the European Research Area, the French National Research Agency (ANR) puts in place bilateral collaborations with European funding agencies. The most advanced type of partnership is the “lead agency” procedure, in which the lead agency handles the submission and evaluation of the project proposals on behalf of both countries.
