The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation has published the second monitoring report on the activities, results and impacts of the Horizon 2020 funding programme.
The report provides an assessment of the calls closed in 2015 along with the updated data for 2014 calls, as well as aggregation for both years. The study underlines the most important issues related to performance as measured by the key performance indicators, implementation aspects and participation trends.
From the intellectual property aspect, the report includes preliminary statistics related to output of projects, in particular publications, patent applications and patent grants, although many of the projects have not yet produced large numbers of publications and patents as they are still in their very early phases.
Nevertheless, as preliminary findings, the report shows that there are 1760 publications in peer-reviewed journals, 109 patent applications and 29 awarded patents, which can be attributed to Horizon 2020 so far.
