The European Commission organized an information session on the opportunities offered by Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) for research and calls for proposals planned for 2016 within the ambit of Horizon 2020.
Public-private partnerships are research partnerships between the EU, the private sector and Member States, and have the main objective of joint efforts to improve the lives of Europeans, create jobs and boost the competitiveness of the EU.
Currently, there are public-private partnerships for the topics:
- Factories of the Future
- Energy-efficient Buildings
- Sustainable Process Industry
- European Green Vehicles
- High Performance Computing (HPC)
- Advanced 5G networks for the Future Internet (5G)
The European Commission has planned calls for proposals in 2016 for financing partnerships aimed at collaboration in strategic areas of research and bringing together the best minds in the academic and industrial world, SME, research centers and other organizations.
