Horizon 2020 Space Information Day

Horizon 2020 Space Information Days 2015


Horizon 2020 is the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for the years 2014-2020 that aims at stimulating growth and creating jobs in Europe. It has a budget of just over €70 billion for that period and has been launched on 1 January 2014. A budget of € 1.42 billion has been earmarked over this 7 year-period to support space activities.

Two major international events will provide first-hand information on the content of the coming calls and bring interested actors together for matchmaking. Both events are co-organised by the European Commission and COSMOS2020, the network of National Contact Points (NCP) for Space.

Registration for Brussels is open until 4 November 2015!
Alternatively you can register just for the Online Partner Search Database without attending one of our events.


28 - 29 September 2015


9 - 10 November 2015



The 2016-2017 work programme for the Space theme under Horizon 2020 will be officially published in October 2015. The EC already published a draft version of the work programme here http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/draft-work-programmes-2016-17 (check for "version (part 05iii LEIT-Space). Also draft versions of the additional documents have been published: http://ec.europa.eu/growth/sectors/space/research/horizon-2020/.

The work programme includes:

  • Applications in Satellite Navigation – Galileo
  • Earth Observation – Copernicus
  • Competitiveness of the European Space Sector (Space Technology, Space Exploration and Science, International Cooperation, Outreach and Communication)
  • Protection of European Assets in and from Space (Space Weather, Space Debris and Near Earth Objects) as part of the COMPET topics
  • SME Instruments and Fast Track to Innovation


This website serves as the event homepage for both events and at the same time hosts a partner search database. When you register (no matter if for events or just for partner search) you have the chance to create cooperation profiles. You can also select your areas of interest and indicate your preferred call topics from the (draft) 2016/2017 Space work programme. This makes the partner search database a powerful networking tool.

During the events you can have bilateral meetings with other participants in dedicated “Brokerage Sessions“ based on a selection and booking process supported by the partner search database. This booking process is done online some days in advance of the events. Further details are explained under "How it works".
