Horizon 2020 is the biggest European Union's funding programme for research and innovation ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market. Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and so put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.

The FET Advisory Group (FETAG) is part of the Advisory Groups put in place to provide advice to the Commission on the implementation for framework programme for research and innovation Horizon 2020. This group in particular is tasked with the Future and Emerging Technologies objective within the "Excellent Science" priority and its members have the task  to inject their ideas with the view to strengthen the foresight capability of the Commission.
