Horizon 2020 is the largest research and innovation program ever developed by the European Union. There is a funding of € 80 billion over 7 years (2014-2020), besides the private investment that this funding will attract. It promises more world-class innovations, breakthroughs, and world premieres, bringing the great ideas from laboratories to the market.
Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument for implementing the Innovation Union, the Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at ensuring global competitiveness in Europe.
Seen as a means of stimulating growth and job creation Horizon 2020 benefits from the political support of European leaders and MEPs who have agreed that investing in research is an investment in our future by placing it at the heart of the Strategy Europe 2020 for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
Bringing together research and innovation, Horizon 2020 contributes to achieving these goals, focusing on scientific excellence, leadership in the industrial sector and societal challenges, to ensure Europe’s ability to produce world-class science, remove barriers in the path of innovation and to facilitate the collaboration of the public and private sectors to provide innovative solutions.

The European Union and the Council of Europe are two of the most influential European structures. Although they cooperate on different areas, you should make a clear distinction between them. First, you need to know that the Council of Europe is compiling 47 Member States and Moldova joined this organization on 13 July 1995. The European Union is made up of 27 Member States and the Republic of Moldova aspires to join this organization.
