What is a work programme?

Work programmes outline the policy rationale for each part of Horizon 2020 and then list topics or funding schemes for which calls for proposals will be launched. In Horizon 2020 the work programmes will be for two-year funding periods, starting with the period of 2014-2015. Calls in the second year will be provisional with the possibility of revisions. For each of the three pillars, a number of instruments and thematic areas are covered by the work programmes. The Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) and Information and communication technologies (ICT) will be mainstreamed across all of Horizon 2020. In addition, there will be measures under Widening Participation with the aim of building more excellence in less developed EU regions. Under the Science with and for Society, projects will look into issues such as gender equality in research, researcher career development, science education and the dissemination of scientific results.
