Crowdhelix is open to applications from any organisation, of any size, anywhere in the world, that can demonstrate a strategic commitment to collaborative research and innovation.

The European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme has an €80 billion budget that funds thousands of collaborative research and innovation projects worldwide. Crowdhelix connects a group of leading research institutions and innovating companies around the world, so that together they can plan and deliver pioneering Horizon 2020 projects.

Together our network has secured €5.37 billion of Horizon 2020 funding, to deliver 9,323 collaborative international projects.

Over €8 billion of Horizon 2020 funding still remains to be awarded before December 2020, after which the proposed €84.9 billion successor programme “Horizon Europe” will commence.
