    • Developing a coherent Bioeconomy  Coherent policy  Investment in knowledge, innovation and skills  Participative governance and informed dialogue with society  New infrastructures and instruments
    • Research and Innovation The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020
    • The future of EU Research: Horizon 2020 EU’s next Financial Framework to support Research and Innovation • Commission proposal in MFF: €80 Billion for 2014-2020 (+ contribution from Structural Funds) • 4.5 bn earmarked for food security and bio-based economy • Next steps:  Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on the basis of the Commission proposal  Mid 2012: Final calls under 7th Framework Programme for Research to bridge gap towards Horizon 2020  End of 2013: Adoption of legislative acts by Parliament and Council on Horizon 2020  1/1/2014: Horizon 2020 starts; launch of first calls
    • Horizon 2020: What’s new • A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives: the 7th research Framework Programme (FP7), innovation aspects of Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), single set of rules to participation • More innovation, from research to retail, all forms of innovation • Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport, bringing different actors together to find solutions • Simplification: new simplified rules of participation with a reduced number of funding schemes, a single web portal
    • Horizon 2020: Three priorities • Excellent science (€24,6 billion) • Industrial leadership (€17,9 billion) • Societal challenges (€31,7 billion) Ongoing budget negotiations, numbers will be updated upon final agreement from the Council and the European Parliament
    • 1: Excellent science Why: • World class science is the foundation of tomorrow’s technologies, jobs and wellbeing • Europe needs to develop, attract and retain research talent • Researchers need access to the best infrastructures European Research Council Frontier research by the best individual teams Future and Emerging Technologies Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation Marie Curie actions Opportunities for training and career development Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructure) Ensuring access to world-class facilities
    • 2: Industrial leadership Why: • Europe needs more innovative SMEs to create growth and jobs • Strategic investments in key technologies (e.g. advanced manufacturing, micro-electronics) underpin innovation across existing and emerging sectors • Europe needs to attract more private investment in research and innovation Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies (ICT, nanotechnologies, materials, biotechnology, manufacturing, space) Access to risk finance Leveraging private finance and venture capital for research and innovation Innovation in SMEs Fostering all forms of innovation in all types of SMEs
    • 3: Societal challenges Why: • Concerns of citizens and society/EU policy objectives (climate, environment, energy, transport etc) cannot be achieved without innovation • Breakthrough solutions come from multi-disciplinary collaborations, including social sciences & humanities • Promising solutions need to be tested, demonstrated and scaled up Health, demographic change and wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime resources & the bioeconomy Secure, clean and efficient energy Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials Inclusive, innovative and secure societies
    • Horizon 2020 Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime resources & the bioeconomy Broad lines • Sustainable agriculture and forestry • Increasing production efficiency and coping with climate change, while ensuring sustainability and resilience • Providing ecosystem services and public goods • Empowerment of rural areas, support to policies and rural innovation • Sustainable and competitive agri-food sector for a safe and healthy diet • Unlocking the potential of aquatic living resources • Sustainable and competitive bio-based industries
    • Broad lines • Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint by smart and sustainable use • Low-cost, low-carbon electricity supply • Alternative fuels and mobile energy sources • A single, smart European electricity grid • New knowledge and technologies • Robust decision making and public engagement • Market uptake of energy innovation Horizon 2020 Secure, clean and efficient energy
    • Horizon 2020 Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials Broad lines • Fighting and adapting to climate change • Sustainably managing natural resources and ecosystems • Ensuring the sustainable supply of non-energy and non- agricultural raw materials • Enabling the transition towards a green economy through eco-innovation • Developing comprehensive and sustained global environmental observation and information systems
    • Horizon 2020 and partnering Public private partnerships e.g. Joint Technology Initiatives JTI on Bio-based Industries (BBI JTI) Public public partnerships e.g. ERA-Nets for topping up individual calls, Art. 185, supporting Joint Programming Intiatives when in line with Horizon 2020 European Innovation Partnership coordination, not funding e.g. EIP «Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability»
    • JTI on Bio-based Industries (BBI JTI) European Technology Platforms Biofuels Suschem Plants for the Future Forest-based Sector FoodforLife European sector organisations COPA COGECA CEPI EuropaBio ERRMA CEFIC European Seed Association European Bioplastics FoodDrinkEurope Industry Group (as of June 2013) Supported by:
    • 10 July 2013: EU and industry join forces to invest more than €22 billion in research and innovation »Commission adoption on 10 July (incl BBI JTI); »Council adoption before end of 2013, after Horizon 2020; »Discussion in Council starting in September 2013; »Joint Undertaking (JU) interim period 2014 – 2015; »First call for proposals in 2014; »JU autonomy expected June 2015.
    • Research and Innovation ERA-NETs Situation FP7 vs. Horizon 2020  FP7 ERA-NET: CSA, coordination and management 100%  FP7 ERA-NET Plus: CSA, 33% contribution to the total call budget, no funding for management and coordination  Horizon 2020:  “Programme co-fund action”, call with top-up funding compulsory, any other activities of networking and coordination complementary  one funding rate per action/project e.g. 33% as in FP7 ERA-NET
    • European Innovation Partnerships EIP «Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability» Objective: Join-up resources to speed-up breakthrough innovations Tackling Europe’s major societal challenges, whilst creating new market potential for EU businesses Approach: • Challenge-driven => address target within a specific societal challenge • Acting across whole research & innovation chain => bring together supply and demand, across sectors and borders => foster communication among stakeholders and workable links between science and practice (from research to market) • Streamlining, simplifying and coordinating existing instruments and initiatives The EIP is not a funding instrument, nor a programme instrument; it cannot take decisions in areas for which Member States and/or the EU are competent Existing initiatives are keeping their own identity and lifecycle and can use the EIP as a platform for adjusting their own priorities and for contributing to its overall target
