To implement the individual programmes, HORIZON 2020 uses various funding schemes. Research and innovation projects are usually implemented in joint projects. Individual funding of scientists is possible as well, it is particularly provided by the ERC and MSCA. An overview of the most important funding schemes is presented below.
Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) are “classic” research and development projects implemented jointly by at least three independent partners from three different EU Member States and/or associated States. The focus is on the establishment of new knowledge and/or the exploration of the feasibility of new or improved technologies, products, processes or services. They include both basic research and applied research and may include limited demonstration and/or pilot activities.
The funding rate is 100%
Innovation Actions (IA) are “close-to-market” joint projects where at least three independent partners from three different EU Member States and/or associated States work together. The focus is on the development of plans and concepts for new, altered or improved products, processes or services. They include e.g. prototyping, testing, demonstrating, piloting, large-scale product validation and developing marketability. Research and development activities are possible to a limited extent.
The funding rate amounts to 70% (non-profit organisations receive a funding rate of 100%)
Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) are accompanying measures serving the coordination and support of research activities (e.g. for standardisation, dissemination, awareness-raising, communication, networking, coordination or support, political dialogues and mutual learning exercises and studies). They may also include additional activities for the networking and coordination of programmes between various countries. They are mainly joint projects; however, individual applications are permitted.
