Funding research for three decades

Since 1984, the Framework Programmes for research and innovation have been funding breakthroughs across Europe. Horizon looks at the people and events that have helped shape European research policy, taking you behind the scenes during the pivotal moments from the last 30 years of research funding. These articles have been brought together into a special Horizon supplement to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Framework Programmes, which is available here.
