  2. 2. The Basics Describing the general case of European Commission ICT funding for collaborative research A slideset intended for newcomers – acknowledged by its originator: the UK ICT National Contact Point to be Probably the worst Powerpoint in the world UK ICT NCP: peter.walters@tsb.gov.uk
  3. 3. THE NEXT 4 SLIDES WILL TELL YOU A FEW ESSENTIALS ABOUT RESEARCH & INNOVATION COLLABORATORS BENEFITS MAKING A PROPOSAL SUBMISSION SUCCESS NEGOTIATION CONSORTIUM AGREEMENT PROJECT START REPORTING PROGRESS RETENTION SUPPORT DOCUMENTATION IN EUROPEAN FUNDED COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH
  4. 4. • RESEARCH & INNOVATION The European Commission supports collaborative Research and Innovation projects by means of grants. • COLLABORATORS The collaborators form a consortium which mostly must include three independent partners from different EU member or associated states. • BENEFITS Important benefits to project participants include the development of knowledge underpinning new products and services, shared expertise, widened capabilities, enlarged networks an expanded world view,……. • MAKING A PROPOSAL Participation follows successful submission of a written proposal in response to a call for proposals referring to a Workprogramme document which defines the technology areas to be addressed.
  5. 5. • SUBMISSION Proposals are submitted electronically using the participant portal before a fixed date and time by the coordinating partner, to whom evaluation results are communicated 5 months later. • SUCCESS Not all proposals are successful, competition is strong, Submission rules are published in the specific ‘Guide for Proposers’ which details the submission process and sets rules which are rigorously applied. • NEGOTIATION A negotiation process follows for successful proposing consortia, this necessitates validation of the identity and financial status of the proposers, and the formal description of the work to be undertaken, this may take several months to complete. .
  6. 6. • CONSORTIUM AGREEMENT The consortium partners undertake a Consortium Agreement which defines the way the consortium will operate • PROJECT START Commencement of the project follows. Within 30 days of which a substantial pre-financing payment is made by The Commission • REPORTING The coordinating partner interfaces with The Commission through a specific Project Officer. Progress reports and financial information and settlement of interrim cost claims are exchanged on a regular basis, with updates to the financing as necessary.
  7. 7. • PROGRESS Periodic project reviews involving independent experts are arranged by the Project officer. Reviews can, in a minority of cases terminate projects which fail to perform, with recovery of unspent/misspent finance. • RETENTION Some 90% of the grant is payable before the project ends. The remainder or retention awaits completion of all documents. • SUPPORT Newcomers are encouraged to discuss their interest with their National Contact Point mailto:peter.walters@tsb.gov.uk who will be able to provide guidance and advice on further steps • DOCUMENTATION Documentation for particular calls for proposals can be downloaded from The Participant Portal: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/page/coope ration - ict .
