About Swiss participation to H2020: let’s be clear on how funding works

Yes! Swiss participation to H2020 is ENTIRELY financed by the Swiss authorities. And YES Swiss partners are perfectly entitled to participate in H2020 projects and act as prime coordinators.

As a Swiss based SME involved in EC funded collaborative projects since about 20 years and managing several ongoing ones, Martel, my company, has a consolidated and strong experience in the international R&D&I landscape. Martel has been involved in several FP5, FP6, FP7 and H2020 projects, and we are now working on a number of proposals for open and upcoming 2016 calls.

Why is competition in H2020 much stronger?

How comes the number of proposals has explonentially increased in many ICT topics?

No secret nor big suprise really: it all depends on the fact that the cost model for funding has drastically changed. When compared to FP7, for all Industrial and SMEs players in Europe to be involved in Research and Innovation Actions and/or Coordination and Support Actions is a unique opportunity to capitilize on their innovation investments, as all costs are in H2020 refunded at 100% rate – while in the past, for both STREPs and IPs, funding was limited to cover 50% or 75% of the planned costs for big industrial players and SMEs respectively.
