    • Work-in-Progress ICT in Horizon 2020 The European Framework Program for Research and Innovation (2014 - 2020) Iddo Bante 22-08-2013
    • For the EC, R&D&I is only a tool Investment in R&D is part of the solution to exit from the economic crises
    • • Originally: A Commission proposal of €80 billion for 2014-2020 bringing together 3 separate programs (RFP, CIP, EIT) Key challenge: stabilise the financial and economic system while taking measures to create economic opportunities • Now: A guarantee of a budget ≈ €70.2 billion Official publication first WPs: 11 December 2013 (not sure yet) • Core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area to:  Tackle the economic crises investing in growth and future jobs;  Address people’s concerns about their standard of living, safety and environment;  Strengthen the Europe’s global position in research, innovation and technology. What is Horizon 2020?
    • A single program Bringing together 3 separate programs: • 7th Framework Program (FP7) • Competitiveness & Innovation Framework Program (CIP) • EU contribution to the EIT Coupling research to innovation • Much more emphasis on innovation  Horizon 2020 goes beyond research and facilitates the step from research to innovation;  Whole chain: from (fundamental) research to market;  All forms of innovation: new products & services, non-commercial social innovation (e.g. better public services or adressing societal needs), pilots, public procurement, standard setting) • More involvement of industry via industrial deployment of key enabling technologies (KETs) and through PPPs (institutional and contractual); What’s new?
    • Focus on societal challenges No prescription of the specific research topics to be addressed, but a description of societal challenges to be solved in areas such as health, food safety, energy, transport. Simplified access / No negotiation phase Less time for administrative procedures  effect on processes at UT Funding: Direct cost (100% or 70%) + 25% No full-cost! Open access to research data Data management plan: access to data (also others), data storage during and after project, … Proposal for reduction of EC costs in 2014  effect on Horizon 2020: 10.2 b€ in 2013 but only 8.8 b€ in 2014 (-13.6%) What’s new? (cont.)
    • Priorities Horizon 2020 Horizon 2020 €70.2 billion Excellent Science European Research Council (ERC) Future Emerging Technologies (FET) Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) European Research Infrastructures Industrial Leadership Enabling and Industrial Technologies Access to risk finance Innovation in SMEs Societal Challenges Health Food Energy Transport Climate and resources Inclusive societies Secure societies European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) Non-nuclear direct actions of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) 22.3 b€ 15.5 b€ 27.0 b€ 2.5b€ 1.7b€ Widening … + Science with and for society 1.2b€
    • Three priorities • Excellent Science (22.3 b€ total; 4 b€ for ICT ?) • Industrial Leadership (15.5 b€ total; 8-9 b€ for ICT ?) • Societal Challenges (27 b€ total; 4-4.5 b€ for ICT?) - Bottum-up approach: top individuals (and top teams ?) - ERC (largest budget), Marie Curie, FET - Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies (largest budget) - Businesses set the agenda - ICT agenda, but ICT is not mentioned as KET - Link to Dutch Topsectors - Health & wellbeing, energy, smart transport, climate, secure society, … - Breakthrough solutions needed  multi-disciplinary collaborations.
