Informatiesessies Strategisch Basisonderzoek 2010 Informatiesessies Strategisch Basisonderzoek 2010 Presentation Transcript

  • agentschap voor Innovatie door Wetenschap en Technologie
  • agentschap voor Innovatie door Wetenschap en Technologie Presentation of the SBO-programme. This presentation contains only the key points of the SBO- programme. For the actual preparation of a proposal it is essential to consult the appropriate SBO-Handbook and Application Form. All available information and documents relevant for the BO Call 2010-2011 is available on IWT’s website. http://www.iwt.be/subsidies/sbo Paul Schreurs
  • Overview. 1. Key characteristics of the SBO-programme. 2. Basic features. 3. General outline of a project proposal. 4. Evaluation process and framework. 5. Practical recommendations when preparing a proposal. 6. Additional information. 3
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme Essence = realisation of strategic reseach investments. Two key aspects: 1. High-quality strategic basic research with a dedicated focus on high-risk, inventive and original research. 2. Strategic interest and extent of the valorisation perspectives in the longer term in Flanders (economic or social/societal). 4
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. strategic basic research” within SBO is not a goal in itself but an essential means to allow for an important new valorisation or knowledge utilisation. The SBO-programme is a cooperation oriented instrument; it requires an investment in the development of meaningful interactions and network building with users in the field (companies, social/societal actors). 5
  • agentschap voor Innovatie door Wetenschap en Technologie ECONOMIC ACTORS (Companies) RESEARCH SOCIAL OR SOCIETAL ACTORS ORGANISATIONS (government entities, civil society (including universities) organisations, social profit etc.)
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. Primary finality = main type of actors who can take up and use the scientific project results (actoren = organisations external to the research organisations) SBO-economic finality = take up and use of the results primarily through economic actors (companies) with an economic value creation objective (i.e. employment + investments). SBO-social finality = take up and use of the results primarily through social/societal actors (e.g. government departments and agencies, civil society organisations, social profit sector) with a social value creation objective. 7
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. Challenges for applicants : 1)Demonstrate scientific potential and research approach. 2)Demonstrate valorisation potential and valorisation approach. • active effort and commitment to enable the effective utilisation and valorisation of the research results by economic or social actors. • meaningful synergy, interaction dynamics and mobilisation across institutional boundaries (research organisations, economic actors, social actors). i.e. substantial difference relative to “classic mechanisms” for the dissemination of academic research results 8
  • Es ist nicht genug zu wissen, man muss auch anwenden. Es ist nicht genug zu wollen, man muss auch tun Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough we must do. Goethe 9
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. Key economic valorisation strategies • Transfer of research results to existing companies; follow-up R&D activities Industrial advisory group (“begeleidingscommissie”) as an instrument • Transfer to a new to be founded spin-off company Key social/societal valorisation strategies. • Transfer of research results to existing organisationss; follow-up R&D activities Social/societal advisory group (“begeleidingscommissie”) as an instrument 10
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. Important Guidance document : IWT’s policy guidelines on the use and transfer of the results of IWT-supported projects http://www.iwt.be/sites/default/files/subsidies/documenten/IW T_toelichtingsdoc_beleidslijn_resultaten_092009.pdf VRWI Prospective study : Valorization of research in the humanities and the social sciences (HIVA- K.U.Leuven, ECOOM (Centre for R&D monitoring), UA and VUB). http://www.vrwi.be/en/council/working- groups/humanities-and-social-sciences 11
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. Main adaptations over recent years To obtain a better valorisation orientation of the projects - With a better alignment between the supply-driven focus (from university research groups and research organisations) and the demand or problem-driven focus (from companies, social actors) - With earlier and more meaningful interactions and cooperations between researchers and the users (companies, social actors) from the early definition and design phase of the project proposal onwards > i.e. enabler for maintaining meaningful interaction dynamics over the lifecycle of the project 12
  • 1. Key characteristics of the SBO- programme. Tell me. I may listen. Teach me. I may remember. Involve me, and I will do it. Old Chinese wisdom 13
  • 2. Basic features. - Project proposers = open and accessable instrument for all Flemish R&D- actors (university associations, strategic research centres, other research organisations, companies etc…) + Optional involvement of R&D actors from abroad Perspective : useful knowledge transfer towards Flanders (i.e. to address “missing links” in essential expertise) and with a clear added value for the SBO-project (including valorisation objectives). 14
  • 2. Basic features. - Project duration: maximum of 4 years - Project budget : see SBO-Handbook in practice (not as a standard) average in the order of magnitude of 2.0 - 2.5 million Euro. Non-Flemish R&D-actors : maximum 20% of the project budget. 15
  • 3. General outline of a project proposal. Part 1 Project sheet and project summary Part 2 Description of the intended valorisation and transfer of knowledge Part 3 Scientific project description Part 4 Expertise and track record of the consortium Appendix A Appendix B Use the application template taking into account the maximum requirements of the proposal length (i.e. eligibility criterion). “Less is more” 16
  • 3. New call SBO 2010-2011. • SBO 2010-2011 call document, handbook and application forms will be made available on the IWT website in both Dutch and English. http://www.iwt.be/subsidies/sbo • The time schedule is similar to that of the previous call -proposal submission by January 10th 2011 -additional info by May 20th 2011 -decision by IWT’s Board on July 14th 2011. • SBO preparatory studies (“voortrajecten”) with a primary social finality are no longer available as a project type which can be funded! 17
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. 4.1. Evaluation process Round 1. Pre-selection. Round 2. Evaluation of the scientific quality S. utilisation/valorisation quality U. In each selection round : advice by the steering evaluation committees (“overkoepelende commissies OC’s) decision by IWT’s Board 18
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. 4.1. Evaluation process Inputs for the evaluation process : Round 1. Project proposal as submitted. Round 2. + written expert evaluation reports + written response from applicants +meeting and discussion with IWT staff on the valorisation/utilisation chapter +written supplement from applicants 19
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. 4.2. Evaluation framework Scientific quality(S ) Valorisation quality (U) -scientific potential -valorisation potential -research approach -valorisation approach -input-output balance -R&D capabilities -competence/track record -added value sustainability Expert evaluation guidelines and scoring and selection methodology available on IWT- website 20
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. Important points of attention. -Increased attention to the specific valorisation potential : shift from “generic platforms” towards more targeted problem-driven projects (“cloud of hail” versus “precision bullets”) -Increased attention to the intelligent composition of the (industrial or social/societal) advisory committee i.e. representative for the anticipated application areas, covering essential actors of the economic or social value chain; -Increased attention to the project preparation phase i.e. evidence of a dedicated process involving early and meaningful two-way interactions between researchers and users during the project definition phase; 21
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. Important points of attention. - Bonus for R&D-interaction and R&D commitment of a company during the SBO-project periodwith an added value for the SBO-project objectives. -company as consortium partner of the SBO- project; -cooperation of a company with the SBO-partners in the framework of parallel industrial R&D activities. Important remark. It is not at all the intention to “dilute” the SBO projects in the direction of normal industrial R&D projects ! SBO requirements and evaluation criteria remain in force (e.g. scientific novelty, valorisation and transfer of results from research organisations in accordance with normal market conditions. 22
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. Minimal requirements and ranking mechanism. - Minimal “reasonable” for both scientific quality S and valorisation quality U ( 6/10). - Projects which meet the minimal requirements are ranked in accordance with an equal weight for the scientific quality S and valorisation quality U scores. In case of projects with equivalent scores , a desirable diversity of application areas can be aimed for. 23
  • 4.Evaluation process and framework. Minimal requirements and ranking mechanism. - Selection priority for projects with a primary economic finality contributing to sustainable development for projects with a primary economic finality. The main focus is the environmental dimension of sustainability. - (Maximum) quota for projects with a primary economic finality directed at the creation of a new to be founded spin-off company : max 20% of the budget allocated to the economic part of the SBO-programme. 24
  • 5. Practical recommendations when preparing a proposal. • Read the SBO Handbook and supporting documents. • Be prepared to invest adequate time and effort in the proposal preparation process. Start early. Adopt a project management approach. • Interact early, systematic and according to plan with potential partners and economic or social/societal users. • Ensure a good coherence between the scientific part and the valorisation part of your proposal. • Ask a colleague to score your (draft) proposal in accordance with the SBO evaluation guidelines. • Make good use of available support services (i.e. university interface services). 25
