The amounts allocated to the Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation by the European Commission under the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2007 to 2013, 2014 to 2020 and in the proposed 2021 to 2027 programme, are set out in the table:

Programme

Total Budget

Framework Programme 7

(2007–2013)

€50.521 billion

Horizon 2020

(2014–2020)

€77.028 billion

Horizon Europe

(2021–2027)

€94.1 billion (proposed)

The European Commission has proposed a budget of €94.1 billion for Horizon Europe for the next MFF. This amount is subject to formal approval as part of the ongoing MFF negotiations.

As of September 2019, Irish researchers and companies continue to perform strongly in competing for this funding.  They have been successful in winning over €800 million in funding from Horizon 2020 to date, already significantly more than the €627 million won during the previous framework programme, FP7.
