Scotland Europa Special Paper – Interim evaluation of Horizon 2020

This paper is Scotland Europa's response to the European Commission’s public stakeholder consultation on the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020.

Scotland Europa members and the wider Scottish H2020 community welcome the opportunity to respond to the European Commission’s public stakeholder consultation on the interim evaluation of H2020. As a result of a Scottish stakeholders’ workshop held on 11 January 2017 and previous one‐to‐one consultations, Scotland Europa has documented the collective experiences of our members and Scottish partner organisations, for whom innovation and funding policies represent a key interest.

Our hope is that the interim evaluation contributes to improving the implementation of H2020 and will provide a solid evidence base for formulating the vision of future activities and initiatives founded on collaborative research, geared to delivering Europe’s global competitiveness.
