Partners and Investors we work with from across the world

Let's succeed together

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 953716.

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness.

Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and so put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth and jobs.

Horizon 2020 couples research and innovation. This emphasizes excellent science, industrial leadership, and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation, and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
