EU research gets €110M top-up for 2018 Featured

EU negotiators agreed in the early hours of Saturday morning to allocate an extra €110 million to the Horizon 2020 research programme in 2018, overturning a proposal by EU governments to cut nearly half a billion euros from EU research spending.

The additional money will be distributed among several arms of Horizon 2020, including the Marie Curie fellowship grants, the SME Instrument, European Research Council, and some climate change competitions.

In Saturday’s final settlement, it was decided that the EU would spend €160.1 billion overall next year, up from €157.9 billion in 2017.
