Programming in progress: 2018 -2020

The 2018-2020 calls for proposals are listed on the Funding Tender portal (European Commission website).

Given the richness and diversity of current events of European calls for proposals and calls for tender; these are sent by e-mail to the Europe thematic mailing lists. The RVR is at your disposal to ensure this targeted monitoring for the benefit of the researcher and the site's Units.

If you wish to find AMU partners for your H2020 collaborative projects or if you wish to come to AMU within the framework of European programmes (Marie Sklodovska Curie Actions, ERC projects), the DRV and the European Contracts Department of Protisvalor are at your disposal.


Our H2020 projects

The university's teams are mobilising on the European H2020 calls. To date, 83 projects have been accepted, with nearly €53 million in grants obtained. As the Horizon 2020 programme enters its final year, these results are significantly improved compared to the FP7 programme, exceeding the budgets obtained under the previous programming.

In addition, AMU confirms its position as France's leading university in the H2020 "Health" programme.

Strengthen the participation of the site's research teams

The university has implemented an ambitious and proactive policy to support the institution's scientists in participating in this program, led by the Research and Development Department with the support of the Protisvalor subsidiary on engineering and project management Horizon 2020.
Structural and incentive measures, focusing on training, teaching service modulations and HR measures are put in place within AMU to encourage and develop European research programmes

Building on our successes at the ERC

AMU pilots theThe CIRCLE InitiativeClub of European Research Council laureates from the Aix-Marseille sitein collaboration with the partners of the Aix-Marseille site, in order to promote a site policy to support the applications of teacher-researchers and researchers to the ERC (European Research Council) programme, a strong marker of scientific excellence.


To Horizon Europe

In June 2018, the European Commission published its proposal for the "Horizon Europe" framework programme, with a budget of nearly €100 billion. The examination of this programme, which is crucial for the future of the European research and innovation landscape, will continue until the European elections in June 2019 and beyond.

The university community of Aix-Marseille, which has been involved since its creation in the various European framework programmes, is a driving force for proposals contributing to the quality, competitiveness and attractiveness of the European research and innovation landscape.

In November 2018, AMU formulated a "Position Paper" which you will find here: inFrenchand inEnglishto take part in the debates.

More information: AMU summary document on the proposal for Horizon Europe (Update September 2019). Other internal summary documents are available on request.
