EU Projects @ CERN
November 2021
From R&D programmes to innovation and technology transfer, EU projects provide a key complementary support to the activities carried out at CERN. They boost the career of scientists and engineers. They place CERN at the centre of a network of hundreds of European academic organisations and industrial companies.
With over 100 projects, the Horizon 2020 programme has been a good harvest for CERN and we are confident for Horizon Europe, the new European funding programme, whose calls hold much promise.

By relaunching its newsletter, the EU Projects Office is committed to highlighting the EU projects undertaken at CERN and encouraging CERN teams to participate in future calls.
In this first issue, we look back at the Horizon 2020 programme. It begins with a review of this successful story. Our selection of articles then highlights the diversity of Horizon 2020 projects: from fundamental research to societal applications and market opportunities. Finally, a selection of the most interesting calls from Horizon Europe is showcased.
We hope you enjoy this newsletter! We encourage you to share it around you, with your team, colleagues and partners and to follow our news on the CERN EU Projects website.

Procurement and Knowledge Transfer department

CERN & the European Commission

Mariya Gabriel, EU Commissioner for Research and Innovation, visited CERN on 6 October 2021, met with young scientists and engineers, and had working meetings with the CERN Directorate.
With 110 projects and EC funding of 74 M€, CERN has been one of the most successful international organisations in H2020.
From quantum-resistant cryptography to advanced robotics, the highlighted calls carry opportunities for CERN, for your research and for your career. The EU Projects Office has handpicked a selection of interesting Horizon Europe calls for CERN.

European Projects News

The CERN-coordinated and EU-funded RADSAGA project has come to an end after four years of rewarding research into radiation protection for electronics.
Through QUACO, several European SMEs, engaged to develop superconducting quadrupole magnets for the HL-LHC, have increased their know-how and successfully accessed to new procurements.
AxScale, an EU project aimed at finding dark matter particle candidates by studying axions and their relatives. Concretely, the project collaborates with two facilities including RADES to search for one particular type of axions.
The effective development of nuclear therapy and molecular imaging has long been limited by the difficult access to radionuclides not yet commercially available. This is going to change with PRISMAP, the European medical radionuclides programme, coordinated by CERN.


The EU offers plenty of opportunity for funding your research and CERN's EU Office, Legal Service and FAP would like to put our expertise and experience at your service so you are prepared for applying to EU funding prospects.
