Horizon 2020 was the EU's research and innovation funding programme for 2014-2020, with a budget of nearly €80 billion. The Commission intends to evaluate this programme in order to improve the implementation of current EU research and innovation measures and the design of future measures. It also fulfils the Commission’s legal obligation to explain how it has spent public funds (Article 32 of Regulation 1291/2013). The final evaluation of Horizon 2020 will analyse the design and implementation, results and impacts of the programme from 2014 to 2020. It will cover all Horizon 2020 instruments, in every scientific fields supported. The EESC will contribute to the Commission's evaluation by providing information from civil society organisations regarding their experiences on the ground, the views of organisations represented within the Committee and of other civil society organisations.
