Improve evaluation and transparency in Horizon 2020, urge MEPs

The process for evaluating Horizon 2020 proposals needs more rigour and first-time applicants for grants from the research programme should get better information on the odds of success.

There is a general plea for the EU Commission to improve on the detail it provides on the various websites uses to promote Horizon 2020 funding, with the report saying for example that there is not enough information for young companies on how to take part in competitions run by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
