Conducting projects at the European level has a year-long tradition at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon. The following pages review EU-funded projects with the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon acting as either the project co-ordinator or a participant. Arrangement of the projects is according to Funding Periods of the European Union and Research Fields of the Helmholtz Association. Information is confined to projects which have been conducted at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon since the year 2000, covering the periods of the 5th, 6th and 7th EU Research Framework Programmes (FP5, FP6 and FP7) as well as the ongoing EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020, HORIZON 2020 (H2020). Under H2020, we also review projects which benefit from co-funding of other instruments of the European Union, particularly within the European Research Area (ERA).

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the European Union for both the projects reviewed here and all other EU-Projects of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon completed in the past.
