Apresentação Alain Peyraube

  1. 1. European Research Council The European Research Council Prof. Alain Peyraube European Research Council Scientific Council ERC visit to Brazil 11-18 May, 2010
  2. 2. European Research Council │ 2 FP7 (EC)FP7 (EC)  7th Framework Programme (FP7) 50.52 Billion Euros, 4 Specific Programs  “Family” of FP7 Specific Programmes  Co-operation 33 B Euros (8 priorities)  Ideas 7.5 B Euros = ERCIdeas 7.5 B Euros = ERC  People 5 B Euros (Marie Curie fellowships)  Capacities 4 B Euros (Infrastructures, etc.)  Ideas: complementary to other FP7 support policy vs. science-driven, bottom-up vs. targeted research
  3. 3. European Research Council │ 3 The AgencyThe Agency  Executes annual work programme as established by the Scientific Council  Implements calls for proposals and provides information and support to applicants  Organises peer review evaluation  Establishes and manages grant agreements  Administers financial aspects and follow-up of grant agreements
  4. 4. European Research Council │ 4 The Scientific CouncilThe Scientific Council Members & RoleMembers & Role 22 most respected researchers reflecting the full scope of European research and scholarship  proposed by an independent identification committee  appointed by the Commission (for 4 years, renewable once) Role:  Establishes overall scientific strategy establishes annual work programmes (incl. calls for proposals, evaluation criteria); defines peer review methodology; ensures selection and accreditation of experts  Controls quality of operations and management  Ensures communication with the scientific community
  5. 5. European Research Council │ 5 Strategic AimsStrategic Aims OverviewOverview • ERC : first pan-European funding agency for frontier research • Funding directed to individual teams and projects selected solely on the criteria of excellence • Operates according to the principles of scientific excellence, autonomy, efficiency and transparency  Autonomous scientific governance  Simple, user-friendly delivery
  6. 6. European Research Council │ 6 ERC Grants: Open to individual teams anywhere in the world • ERC is the only component of the FP7-family to widely open its programs and schemes to individual teams anywhere in the world, • under only one condition, i.e. that funded projects will have to be located in EU or its associated countries • Thus, PIs and team members can be of any nationality, working in almost any country
  7. 7. European Research Council │ 7 Two types of Grants • ERC Starting Grants, supporting excellent early stage independent investigators (2-9 years since completion of PhD) – 2007 and 2009 • ERC Advanced Grants, supporting investigators at all subsequent stages – 2008 and 2010 • Hosting institution  Located in a EU Member State or Associated Country  Intra-European grant portability allowed
  8. 8. European Research Council │ 8  For operational reasons the ScC agreed on 3 main research domains: ─ Domain 1: Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Information and Communication, Engineering Sciences, Universe and Earth Sciences (PE) ─ Domain 2: Life Sciences (LS) ─ Domain 3: Social Sciences and Humanities (SH)  Pre-allocation of call budget for ERC Grants per domain currently as follows: 45% PE - 40% LS - 15% SH  Now : 39% PE – 34% LS – 14% SH + 13% Interdisc. ERC Grant schemesERC Grant schemes Budget AllocationBudget Allocation
  9. 9. European Research Council │ 9  Panels have one Panel Chair and 10-12 Panel Members, all selected by the Scientific Council members  20 Panels for the 1st Call : 8 PE, 7 LS, 5 SH  25 Panels now: 10 PE, 9 LS, 6 SH  Panel Chair oversees evaluation process for the proposals assigned to his/her Panel in collaboration with ERC staff  Panel Chair gives high level stamp of credibility and visibility to the whole evaluation process ERC Grant schemesERC Grant schemes Panel StructurePanel Structure
  10. 10. European Research Council │ 10 Panels composition • Panel Members and Chairs  Make decisions and document the decisions • Panel chairs  Ensure quality of the evaluation process  Chair panel meetings (steps 1 & 2)  Participate in panel chair meetings • ERC Panel Teams (2 Scientific Officers)  Ensure that rules are respected  Ensure comparable process is followed in all panels  Transition: composed of ERC staff and RTD colleagues
  11. 11. European Research Council │ 11 Evaluation criteria 1. Principal Investigator 2. Research Project 3. Research Environment Step 1 of evaluation  criteria 1 and 2 Step 2 of evaluation  all criteria  Referees and panels evaluate and score criteria 1 and 2 numerically, which will result in the ranking of the proposals  Criteria 3 will be considered as "pass/fail" and commented upon but not scored
  12. 12. European Research Council │ 12 Co-investigators • Exceptional • For interdisciplinary proposals only • PI can include 1 or more co-investigators (co-I) • Co-I submitted to same resubmission rule as PI • Higher budget (up to 3,5 M€) • Scientific added value of including co-investigators to be assessed by panel
