MAIN OBJECTIVES and ACTIVITIES

Future and Emerging Technologies activities help to create in Europe a fertile ground for responsible and dynamic multi-disciplinary collaborations on future and emerging technologies and for kick-starting new European research and innovation eco-systems around them. These will be the seeds for future industrial leadership and for tackling society's grand challenges in new ways. Particular attention is paid to tapping into the innovation potential from the respective FET action lines.

The activities included in the 'Future and emerging technologies (FET)' challenge H2020 2016-2017 Work Programme contribute to four focus areas (calls): 'FET Open - Novel ideas for radically new technologies'; FET Proactive - 'Boosting emerging technologies' and 'High performance computing'; and 'FET FLAGSHIPS - Tackling grand interdiciplinary science and technology challenges'. Each focus area comprises certain pre-defined topics will be funded.

BUDGET

The EU Member States have earmarked a total of € 570 million for funding this theme over 2016 and 2017. The indicative budgets for the calls announced are listed in Work Programme.
