  • FP7 context – the opportunity for Ireland Participation of Ireland's research institutions, SMEs and multinationals in high-calibre research collaborations with European counterparts [budget of €50 billion from 2007 to 2013] Recent national investment in research means Ireland can participate in FP7 from a far stronger position than before [design of FP7 suits the needs of Irish researchers; its adapted to encourage industry participation, the application process has been simplified, industry- specific targets set and higher funding rates agreed] As economic conditions have deteriorated nationally (and internationally), FP7 comes into its own as a non-exchequer funding source [budget stability guaranteed and growing year on year]
  • Ireland’s involvement to date 2965 proposals submitted to date 720 successful - receiving €213 million Irish success rate: 24.28% (European Member State average: 22.28%) Higher education research accounts for 61% of funding Industry at 26% - €55 million (access to €792m worth of R&D); SMEs (69%) Funding to several universities has surpassed FP6 (2.5 years versus 5 years) Funding to industry has also surpassed FP6 A strong performance in keeping with our target of €600m for FP7 **ENV: 99 participations; 27 successes; €5.5 million – with multiple participations and successes across FP7 programmes**
