An overdensity of young stellar objects (YSOs) is observed at the edges of HII regions but the mechanisms that give rise to this phenomenon are not clearly identified. Moreover, it is difficult to establish a causal link between HII-region expansion and the star formation observed at the edges of these regions. A clear age gradient observed in the spatial distribution of young sources in the surrounding might be a strong argument in favor of triggering. We have observed the Galactic HII region RCW120 with Herschel PACS and SPIRE photometers at 70, 100, 160, 250, 350 and 500um. We produced temperature and H2 column density maps and use the getsources algorithm to detect compact sources and measure their fluxes at Herschel wavelengths. We have complemented these fluxes with existing infrared data. Fitting their spectral energy distributions (SEDs) with a modified blackbody model, we derived their envelope dust temperature and envelope mass. We computed their bolometric luminosities and discuss their evolutionary stages. The Herschel data, with their unique sampling of the far infrared domain, have allowed us to characterize the properties of compact sources observed towards RCW120 for the first time. We have also been able to determine the envelope temperature, envelope mass and evolutionary stage of these sources. Using these properties we have shown that the density of the condensations that host star formation is a key parameter of the star-formation history, irrespective of their projected distance to the ionizing stars. Description: Table A1 presents the Herschel fluxes for the sample of 35 sources discussed in the paper complemented with the 2MASS, GLIMPSE and MISPGAL catalogues. Column 1 gives an identification number. Columns 2 and 3 are the coordinates according to the getsources catalog. Columns 4 to 11 are the fluxes from the 2MASS All-Sky Point Source Catalog, GLIMPSE I Spring '07 Catalog (highly reliable) and the MIPSGAL catalog (in mJy). Columns 12 to 17 are the Herschel fluxes from the getsources catalog (in Jy). No scaling factor or color-corrections were applied. File Summary:
