Horizon 2020 FET OPEN


FET Open aims to establish European leadership in the early exploration of future technologies. It looks for opportunities of long-term benefit for citizens, the economy and society. It aims to mobilise Europe’s most creative and forward thinking researchers from all disciplines to work together and explore what may become the leading technology paradigms of the future.

FET Open supports early stage science and technology research exploring new foundations for radically new future technologies by challenging current paradigms and venturing into unknown areas. It aims to attract interdisciplinary consortia that do not shy away from exploring connections between remote disciplines in order to open-up new and potentially game changing technological directions that FET as a whole aim to develop into the leading technology paradigms of the future, including through FET-Proactive projects and FET-flagship initiatives.
