The second Horizon2020 Work Programme includes 16 work programmes, 63 calls and around 600 topics in 2016 and 2017. The Commission is planning to award approximately 1000 European Research Council grants and 10,000 fellows are to benefit from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions in 2016 itself.

The two-year programme has a budget of almost €16 billion and has been designed to respond to the wider policy objectives of the European Commission, including the Jobs, Growth and Investment Package, the Digital Single Market, the Energy Union, Climate Change policy and making Europe a stronger global actor.
