Frontier Research, ERC New in FP7 – Ideas block Continues, “Excellent Science” priority
Technology Platforms and Joint Undertakings Set up, support Existing public-public and public-private partnerships may receive support and new ones may be launched Article 185 initiatives: the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP), Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), Baltic Sea
Research and Development Programme (BONUS), Eurostars and the European Metrology Research Programme. Further support may also be provided to the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) established under the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan). Article 187 Joint Undertakings: Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), Clean Sky, Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR), Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH), and Embedded computing systems (ARTEMIS) and Nanoelectronics (ENIAC). Other: Factories of the Future, Energy-efficient Buildings, European Green Cars Initiative, Future Internet,
European Industrial Initiatives (EIIs) established under the SET Plan
International cooperation Supported Important in many topics, actions. Three groupings: (1) industrialised and emerging economies; (2) enlargement and neighbourhood countries; and (3) developing countries. Strategic cooperation: European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials
Partnership (EDCTP2); Human Science Frontier Programme (HSFP); International consortium on rare diseases; International Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy Forum and the EU-US Task Force on Biotechnology Research; Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), and the Group on Earth Observations (GEO); Space Dialogues between the Union and the United States of America and Russia
FET: Future and Emerging Technologies Under “Cooperation” specific FET calls Different Logic – under “Excellent science”. Small and flagship projects will be supported as well (flagship – large-scale project, networking, long term)
Marie Curie Actions Continuation from FP6 under People Scopes remain. under “Excellent science”. New elements: Alumni services; newly qualifies PhDs are also target group
Research infrastructures under “Capacities” under “Excellent science” Check the ESFRI Roadmap and e-IRG recommendations
Key Enabling Technolgies themes under “Cooperation” mainly – ICT, Nanotechnologies, KBBE, Space, parts of Energy main component under under “Industrial leadrship” • Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Nanotechnologies,
Advanced materials, Biotechnology,
Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, Space
Check the reports of the Expert Group here on KETs
SME related actions, access to finance under “Capacities” specific funding scheme, under “Cooperation” SME focused topics and horizontally in FP7 15% of the budget to SMEs, Risk Sharing Finance Facility horizontally SMEs are a main target group Under “Industrial Leadership” the component Access to Risk Finance is targeting SMEs and the component “Innovation in SMEs” is dedicated to SMEs. COSME and Horizon 2020 will be complementing each other and more close coordination with Structural Funds will be also present. R&D performing SMEs will be supported under a specific scheme in “Innovation in SMEs” See also CIP EIP schemes 2007-2013 debt and equity financing with EIF and EIB and COSME 2014-2020 programmes. Management of equity and debt financing will be done by EIF and EIB, so check their web pages for details. The scheme supporting the market-oriented innovation of R&D Performing SMEs builds on the Eurostars initiative.
Innovation in SMEs: all stages of innovation is financed.  Phase 1: Concept and feasibility – positive outcome will allow going to phase 2; Phase 2: R&D, demonstration, market replication – focus on DEM. Phase 3: Commercialisation does not give direct funding, but the SMEs successful in Phase 2 can access finance under “Access to Risk Finance” component and benefit from other support measures Check the SBIR model
Enterprise Europe Network and supporting SMEs – soft measures (networking, reducing barriers, studies, etc) Support actions in specific themes and SME association schemes “Innovation in SMEs” actions, EEN support, IPR Helpdesk support, Eurostars Initiative support EEN support from CIP EIP between 2007-2013
Combination of funds EU funds were complementary in 2007-2013, double funding was strictly prohibited Combination of Horizon 2020 and Structural Funds will be possible – check carefully the rules later on. Provisions from the debt facility may be combined, with the possible addition of grants (including lump sums), with provisions from the equity financial instrument in one or more integrated schemes
EIT Newly established in 2010 the EIT will maintain its mission: integrating the knowledge triangle and experimenting with new approaches for innovation, notably involving the business community. It will also provide a stable base for its Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs). The EIT will consolidate existing KICs and will expand their number gradually. In order to fulfil its role as a test bed for new, simplified governance and funding innovation models, the EIT’s current flexibility is to be preserved.
Participant Portal New in FP7 – replaces CORDIS slowly The whole set of practical arrangements for proposal and project implementation will also be revisited and streamlined. This includes the detailed provisions on the content and shape of proposals, the processes for turning proposals into projects, the requirements for reporting and monitoring, as well as the related guidance documents and support services. A major contribution to reduced administrative costs for participation will come from a single user-friendly IT platform for all interactions with participants, based on the FP7 Participant Portal.
Link with Structural Funds increased coordination The purpose of the Cohesion Policy funds (Structural Funds) is to support capacity building and hereby reduce the significant economic, social and territorial disparities that still exist between Europe’s regions. Cohesion policy funds are distributed based on pre-allocated global envelopes to the Member States and regions. This funding is implemented through a series of Operational Programmes and individual projects, including those supporting research and innovation. There are already substantial interactions between the EU’s research and innovation policy and its Cohesion policy. In FP7, investments in building excellence and innovation capacity are made through the ‘Regions of Knowledge’, ‘Research Potential’ and ‘Research Infrastructures’ actions. At the same time, the Member States and regions have committed some EUR 86 billion from the EU’s cohesion budget in the current programming period for actions supporting research and innovation. For the next programming period, Horizon 2020 will also contribute to research and innovation in the regions mainly by improving policy support, in order to build efficient smart specialisation strategies in full cooperation with Cohesion policy.
