Following a busy first year of the Horizon 2020 programme, it's an appropriate time to review progress. The presentation will include a short introduction to Horizon 2020 and some of the lessons learned during the first Call series of Work Programmes 2014-2015 with a focus on the new parts of the programme.

The latest European Commission data illustrating Ireland’s track record in European Framework Programmes, particularly in FP7, will be presented. It will compare Ireland's higher education institutions and private enterprise sectors and provide an indication of the scale and critical mass achieved through R&D projects in Ireland. Ireland will be compared to other EU Member States as a benchmark of performance.

Current approaches to support Ireland’s applicants to Horizon 2020 will be described, providing an update on the activities of the National Contact Points and Delegates for the programme.
