  • FP5 Pilot action
  • It used to be simple…..
  • I’m sure you’ll recognize this being true for many sectors, but in particular some sectors, like the biotech/pharma sector in which we operate, this is becoming the norm. We can fill in this map with many of the relationships we have with our partners. Due to the proliferation of information in this space, the new R&D operating model will lend itself to virtualisation, with a network of coordinated service providers contributing to the R&D process. Each step of the R&D process, from target identification through to regulatory affairs, will be enabled by a set of specialist organisations. The R&D process itself will change fundamentally to become more patient-centric where the patient can contribute knowledge to the process and dictate more specialised requirements.
  • Common in the industry, this is increasingly introduced in academic environments as well. Especially in the International context: all these factors are related to each other!!!!

    • Where is the Value in joint R&D projects?
      • Innovate products and processes
      • Feed pipeline with new/ improve products
      • Diversify portfolio
    • Why collaborate?:
      • Access to new knowledge
      • Access to unique infrastructure
      • Access to valuable materials, information dbases
      • Achieve critical mass (work faster/disseminate wider/ increase visibility)
      • Access to new experts (future staff?)
      •  Obtain public funding to lower the risk !
    Why R&D funding
  • Overall Funding Opportunities
    • National funding (tbc)
      • Innovation projects alone or w/ public research facility
      • Subsidies and loans, for conditions see procedures
    • Non-EU funding
      • European Science Foundation ESF, European Young Investigator Awards (EURYI), workshops
      • COST open calls
      • US funding: NIH, NSF, DoD, DoE, etc. OK for clinical studies, new materials & technologies, but IPR may be an issue
      • Private Foundations, e.g. B&M Gates Foundation, TB Alliance: good for impact studies (and fellowships)
    • Internal and corporate funding
      • Corporate funds for core development activities (and marketing research and up-scaling manufacturing infrastructure)
    • EU funding
      • FP7 calls in 2Qtr 2010 : => get ready now
        • Work programs KBBE released in Summer 2010
        • CIP program in parallel to FP7
  • Why European funding?
    • International Challenges
    • Increased need for a multidisciplinary approach for complex problems
    • Not all expertise or capacity in house available
    • Demand for more exploitation of R&D (towards Knowledge driven societies)
    • BUT
    • Usually no cross border funding from national agencies
    • Language differences
    • Cultural differences
    • => Complexity with Management
    • => Responsible partnering across sectors
    • Added value of an international network (new ideas)
    • Added value of international exploitation (new applications)
    • Critical mass (to fight fragmentation in Europe)
    Overall objectives of FP7 Research Education Innovation jobs, growth Knowledge for Growth Therefore: read the background documentation
  • General principles EU funding
    • European funding –is a “ gluing” enabler, makes possible cooperative research impossible otherwise (not a basic research funding)

  • You have an IDEA?
    • You have:
      • Knowledge to innovate, to offer a service
      • Unique Process or Product
        • It already exists => you seek new (international?) market
        • It still needs development => you look for a development partner
        • It’s an idea in need of research:
          • You have R&D capacity yourself => find research partners
          • You have some R&D capacity but not all => join Research consortium
          • You don’t have any R&D capacity => target SME specific type of projects
  • Main Objectives: what do you want?
    • What do you want to achieve ?
    • Innovate in products and processes
      • Feed pipeline with new/ improved products
      • Diversify your portfolio
      • Enter new markets

      • Loose competitive advantage (it is always temporary !)
      • Loose key knowledge
      • Loose key experts
      • Old infrastructure
      • Work in isolation (influencing power)
  • What’s next? Find and select partners
      • Use your academic contacts and their networks
      • Line up with key Academic Institutes - let them search

    • Ensure corporate design (printing, web). Potentially – subcontract it.
    • Frequent mistake: dissemination is planned for the end of the project. Better:
        • At the beginning – dissemination planning
        • Everyday dissemination - through the project
        • Key events – at the end
    • Basis for Funding:

  • Exercise, the elevator pitch
    • Elevator Pitch A term comparing the time an entrepreneur has to gain the interest of a venture capitalist for his business idea with an elevator ride .
    • An elevator pitch (or elevator speech ) is a brief overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The pitch is so called because it can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (say, thirty seconds or 100-150 words).
    • The term is typically used in the context of an entrepreneur pitching an idea to a VC to receive funding. Venture capitalists often judge the quality of an idea and team on the basis of the quality of its elevator pitch, and will ask entrepreneurs for the elevator pitch to quickly weed out bad ideas.
    • 5 tips:
    • Figure out what is unique about what you do: The whole idea behind a great elevator pitch is to intrigue someone. It's an ice-breaker and a marketing pitch — all rolled into one. Your elevator pitch must have a hook.
    • Make it exciting: A superior elevator pitch increases your heart rate. It speaks to who you really are and what excites you about your business. It has integrity. What is it about your business that really motivates you?
    • Keep it simple: A good elevator pitch doesn't try and be all things to all people. Rather, it conveys a clear idea in a short amount of time. It might be a few sentences, but no more than a paragraph or so. Keep it under 30 seconds.
    • Write it down: Use the guidelines above and take a stab at it. Write down your pitch, say it out loud, re-write it, and then re-write it again.
    • Practice, and the practice some more: The first few times you try out your elevator pitch may be a bit uncomfortable, but it gets easier. After a while, it will become second nature to you, and when it does, you will be glad you practiced.
  • Exercise continued
    • Review of partner search forms
    • Prepare your elevator pitch
    • Prepare a partner request pitch
    • Each workshop participant presents its elevator pitch and partner request pitch in front of the group, in English for 5-10 minutes maximum
