On 29 May 2017, the European Commission published the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020.
This comprehensive assessment of Horizon 2020 covers its first three years. Of the first 11,000 projects funded so far, less than 10% have finished, so it is not possible to talk about the final impact of Horizon 2020. But the main aims of the interim evaluation are to contribute to improving the implementation of Horizon 2020, to provide the evidence-base for the report of the High Level Group on maximizing the impact of EU Research and Innovation programmes and to inform the design of future Framework Programmes.
To read about the findings of the Horizon 2020 Interim Evaluation (e.g. the Key findings from the Horizon 2020 Interim Evaluation brochure, Interim Evaluation of Horizon 2020 book, Commission Staff Working Document - In-depth interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 or the Annex 1 or 2, which provide detailed results from the stakeholder consultation, procedural information, in-depth analysis of horizontal issues, as well as the 18 ‘thematic’ assessments prepared by the Commission services for each Horizon 2020 programme part) follow the links above, visit the related EC website or browse in our TAIPI Documents section.
