  • For comparison, FP7 ran for six years (2007 – 2013) with 55 billion EUR.

    Simplification is that the level of “structure”:

    programme architecture is clearer, so participants can identify the most suitable themes and funding opportunities for the;
    There’s a single set of participation rules (on eligibility, evaluation, Intellectual Property Rights etc.).
    Electronic signatures of grants will speed up administrative procedures.

    And at the levels of funding rules, and control strategy. (That’s a bit more involved, and I don’t think you need to explain it: it’s clearly laid out here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/horizon2020/pdf/press/fact_sheet_on_rules_under_horizon_2020.pdf

    “Time to grant” is defined as “the administrative period between submission of a proposal and signature of the grant agreement”: The EC is committed to reducing the period to 8 months.
  • A shorter summary of the previous information.
  • The H2020 consists of three core themes or “pillars”:

    EXCELLENT SCIENCE
    Aims to increase the excellence of Europe’s scientific communities, with support for collaborative research projects in Future and Emerging Technologies;

    Builds upon the work of the European Research Council to support groundbreaking research projects;

    the Marie Curie Actions is a research fellowship programme that offers training and career development for researchers at every stage of their careers;

    Strengthen research infrastructures that accessible to all researches in Europe and beyond.


    INDUSTRIAL LEADERSHIP
    Supports leadership in Key Enabling Technologies (such as biotechnology, ICT, Nanotechnology, space etc.).
    Targets SMEs in particular, to stimulate the growth potential of European companies.

    SOCIETAL CHALLENGES
    Consolidates knowledge across a range of disciplines, including social sciences and the humanities, to tackle issues of concern to people across Europe (e.g. secure/clean energy, climate action, food security, sustainable agriculture etc.)

  • For those proposals that request funding in the pilot areas (for example e-infrastructures), a series of valid reasons to opt out are defined. These raise mainly from possible conflicts with other obligations in the grant agreement and include IPR protection, confidentiality, security reasons, and personal data protection. In addition, if the main objective of the proposal is in conflict with the pilot rules, the project can either opt out and explain the reasons in the data management policy of the template B, or, if only specific parts are in conflict, define these dataset as not open in the DMP. The second case is an example of a project that does participate but takes decisions during the project lifetime on what can be shared and what should not be shared. Other legitimate reasons can also be defined as basis for opt out in the proposal.

  • 1. Horizon 2020 Opportunities for Research Libraries Susan Reilly Advocacy & Projects Manager, LIBER
  • 2. What is Horizon 2020? “Flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness.” Nearly 80 billion EUR of funding available 2014 – 2020. The EU’s largest ever Research and Innovation Programme. Simplified funding rules and streamlined application and evaluation procedures: “time to grant” reduced to a maximum of 8 months. “A means to drive economic growth and create jobs … a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation.”
  • 3. What is Horizon 2020?  Couples research to innovation.  Focuses on societal challenges (e.g. health, environment, energy, transport) facing European peoples.  Simplifies access to funding for institutions, universities and companies.
  • 4. The Three Pillars EXCELLENT SCIENCE INDUSTRIAL LEADERSHIP SOCIETAL CHALLENGES

  • 7. E-infrastructures  Managing, preserving and computing with big data  Data management plans? Metadata?  Provision of core services across e-infrastructures  Authentication, authorisation infrastructure  Persistent identification  E-infrastructures for virtual research environments  New ways of exposing content?  New professions and skills for e-infrastructures
  • 8. Managing, preserving and computing with big research data (EINFRA-1-2014) includes – DMP helpdesk and tools ('federated data management services') in particular for Horizon 2020 project participants – Services to support project participants in any area of Horizon 2020 for managing the life cycle of data they collect or produce within projects
  • 9. EINFRA-7-2014 – Provision of core services across e-infrastructures – Deployment and promotion of a pan-European identity federation for researchers, educators and students. – The objective is enhanced sharing of existing resources without increase in administrative overhead. – Ambition: European-wide single sign-on service.
  • 10. INFRASUPP-4-2015 – New professions and skills for e-infrastructures – Formal education for e-infrastructure operators, research technologists, data scientists and data librarians. • Defining or updating university curricula. • Developing and executing training programmes. • Networking and information sharing and awareness raising activities.
