The European Union (EU) has set a target of investing 3% of GDP in R&D (two-thirds of which from private investment). Public policies and well-designed subsidies can be mobilised to leverage private investment where market failures exist. The Commission has launched a €80 billion programme for 2014-2020 ('Horizon 2020') to promote cross-country projects in R&D&I.
