Grøn/Bruun Research and Innovation Bureau is a strong supporter of EU’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. So far almost 20.000 projects have been granted which amounts to more than EUR 33 billion supporting businesses and academia in addressing major societal challenges such as climate change, energy, health and groundbreaking new research. French president Macron is also an adamant supporter of science and Horizon 2020. On the occasion of his visit to Denmark on 28-29 August 2018, Grøn/Bruun has assessed the 20.000 Horizon 2020 projects and found:

– French and Danish organisations collaborated in 546 Horizon 2020 funded projects. In total these projects received EUR 4,1 billion.

– In total, the French and Danish organisations have been granted EUR 809,7 million in these projects.  Danish organisations have received a total of EUR 293,8 million and French organisations have received EUR 515,8 million.

– The parts of Horizon 2020 in which French and Danish institutions collaborated the most in terms of individual participations where under the mobility programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and Societal challenge 2: European Bioeconomic Challenges.

– In terms of where the highest rate of funding was received, was under the pro-gramme parts Societal challenge 2: European Bioeconomic Challenges and Societal challenge 1: Health, demographic change and wellbeing (SC1).
