12 new FET Proactive projects defy the bounds of innovation

12/12/2016
The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme continues its journey towards scientific and technological breakthroughs with the funding of 12 new projects under Horizon 2020.

The essence of FET Proactive is to encourage researchers from different disciplines to work together to open promising paths towards radically new technological possibilities. Four specific topics were identified for this call:

  • Future technologies for societal change,
  • Biotech for better life,
  • Disruptive information technologies, 
  • New technologies for energy and functional materials.

The projects that have now been selected will face the challenge of making new and exciting breakthrough discoveries in these diverse research fields, creating tomorrow's innovation.

These 12 new FET-Proactive projects have been selected for funding after the call for proposals H2020-FETPROACT-2016-2017 - Boosting emerging technologies.
