- the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) and
- the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
In Horizon 2020 research and innovation funding will be brought together in a coherent and flexible manner and will focus clearly on implementing the aims of the of the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 initiative.
Horizon 2020 will be launched in January 2014 with the publication of the first calls expected in December 2013.
