Horizon 2020 - statistics on the first 100 calls for proposals

By 1 December 2014 the first 100 calls had closed. A publication to present the degree to which the programme has attracted newcomers - both as participants and as expert evaluators - , the involvement of SMEs and the proportion of women experts.
The text below have been taken from the brochure, "Horizon 2020 - first results" (PDF 3MB), which presents information on the first 100 calls for proposals.
10 key facts
  • A total of 36 732 eligible proposals were submitted under Horizon 2020’s first 100 calls (FP7: 135 514), breaking down as follows:
    • 29 794 full proposals in single-stage calls
    • 5 617 outline proposals in the first stage of the two-stage calls
    • 1 321 full proposals in the second stage of the two-stage calls
  • In total, 31 115 full proposals were submitted.
  • The total number of eligible applications in full proposals was 123 334 (FP7: 598 080).
  • These eligible proposals requested a total EU financial contribution of €80.3 billion (FP7: €217.1 billion), and were evaluated by 9 325 experts.
  • 4 315 proposals were retained for funding. The overall success rate of eligible full proposals under the first 100 calls is around 14%, compared with around 20% for the whole of FP7.
  • 38% of successful applicants were newcomers (compared to 13% in 2013, the last year of FP7), of which 1 100 were SMEs.
  • The 20% budget target for SMEs has been achieved.
  • 3 236 grant agreements were signed by the end of April 2015 (compared with 25 164 grant agreements over the seven years of FP7).
  • These grant agreements awarded a total EU contribution of €5.5 billion towards total eligible costs of €6.5 billion.
  • 95% of all grant agreements were signed within the target of eight months.
Some key concepts:
Universities remain in first place both in terms of participations and financial contribution received. The private sector, public bodies and ‘Other’ have increased their relative share of participations and financial contribution and research organisations have also increased their share of the EU financial contribution.
Compared with the situation over the full seven-year duration of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the share of SME participations has increased under Horizon 2020. The data presented compares the Cooperation theme of FP7 to the participations in the Leading and Emerging Industrial Technology (LEIT) and the Societal Challenge themes of Horizon 2020. The EU financial contribution to SMEs from these two themes also shows that the 20% budget target has been achieved. Of this contribution, around 5% is provided by the Horizon 2020 SME instrument.
The following selection of Horizon 2020 projects is an illustration of how new ideas can bring about concrete results and benefits for citizens and businesses as well as for the wider European economy.
