Horizon 2020 Industrial Leadership Calls Open for Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing

New Call Topics have opened under the Industrial Leadership (LEIT): Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing pillar of Horizon 2020.

Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing is part of the Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT) pillar of Horizon 2020, the EU’s programme for research and innovation. The core priorities of this funding programme include bridging the gap between research and markets for nanotechnologies, advanced materials, and production.

A total of 11 new Call topics under the LEIT programme of Horizon 2020 are now open. The Topics are all part of the ‘Foundations For Tomorrow’s Industry’ Call, which is designed to lay the foundations for tomorrow’s industry in Europe, and to create jobs and growth through an innovation ecosystem for the design, development, testing, and upscaling of advanced materials and nanotechnologies. This should enable a vast array of applications and facilitate innovators to bring their disruptive ideas to the market.

The following Call Topics follow a single-stage application procedure:

  • NMBP-36-2020 – Monitoring and safety of transport infrastructures: Types of action: CSA Coordination and support action.
  • NMBP-37-2020 – Incentivising Newcomers: Types of action: CSA Coordination and support action.
  • NMBP-38-2020 – Citizens and Industrial Technologies: Types of action: CSA Coordination and support action.
  • DT-NMBP-39-2020 – Towards Standardised Documentation of Data through taxonomies and ontologies: Types of action: CSA Coordination and support action.

The following Call Topics follow a two-stage application procedure:

  • DT-NMBP-04-2020 – Open Innovation Test Beds for nano-enabled bio-based materials: Types of action: IA Innovation action.
  • DT-NMBP-05-2020 – Open Innovation Test Beds for materials for building envelopes: Types of action: IA Innovation action.
  • DT-NMBP-06-2020 – Open Innovation Test Beds for nano-pharmaceuticals production: Types of action: IA Innovation action.
  • DT-NMBP-11-2020 – Open Innovation Platform for Materials Modelling: Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action.
  • NMBP-16-2020 – Safe by design, from science to regulation: multi-component nanomaterials: Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action.
  • NMBP-35-2020 – Towards harmonised characterisation protocols in NMBP: Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action.
  • DT-NMBP-40-2020 – Creating an open market place for industrial data: Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action.

Applications are made via the Horizon 2020 online submission system on the Funding & Tenders Portal website.

The deadline for single-stage application Call Topics is 5 February 2020.

The stage one deadline for two-stage applications is 12 December 2019.
