Promoting Indian participation in Horizon 2020


  1. EU-India collaborative research projects (for research teams)

    The European Commission has launched a co-funding mechanism with India. This mechanism enables Indian research teams to receive funding (from DBT) when participating in certain collaborative research projects in Horizon 2020. This is an exciting new opportunity for Indian researchers looking to collaborate with European partners under Horizon 2020, the famous EU Framework Programme for research & innovation (2014-2020).

    For more information about this mechanism (regarding funding, eligibility, application process and more) please read the notice recently published by DBT

    This notice includes the list of the Horizon 2020 calls for proposals to which the co-funding mechanism is applicable.  Indian teams are encouraged to consider participation in these calls, and European consortia currently being formed in connection with these calls are encouraged to consider the inclusion of Indian participants.

    For general information about Horizon 2020 and other opportunities for EU-India research cooperation, please refer to this comprehensive brochure.
  2. Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships (for individual researchers)

    The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCAs) enable experienced researchers (holding a PhD or with at least 4 years of research experience) to secure EU funding via Individual Fellowships ("IFs"), with a view to conducting research in the EU during 12 to 36 months. A call for proposals for IFs is currently open, with a closing date of 14 September 2016.

    There are two types of Individual Fellowships:
  • European Fellowships (relevant for Indians wishing to move to Europe) – enabling researchers to work at a research organisation in Europe, with a view to acquiring new skills or working in new sectors. The fellowships are open to researchers either moving within Europe or coming to Europe.
  • Global Fellowships (relevant for Europeans wishing to move to India) – enabling European researchers to acquire new knowledge by working outside Europe for a time, before transferring that knowledge back into Europe.
