  • 1. Slide 00 European research Horizon 2020 the future research framework programme of the European Union Sandro D'Elia European Commission Directorate General CONNECT Unit Software & Services, Cloud Computing
  • 2. Slide 01 The European Union (EU) is a political and economic union of 27 Member States, Member States delegate some of their competences to the EU ("exclusive", "shared" or "supporting") Research is a "shared competence" of the European Union
  • 3. Slide 02 H2020 – what is it? A single research and innovation programme bringing together 3 separate initiatives (FP7, CIP, EIT) (Framework Programme 7, Competitiveness and Innovation Programme, European Institute of Technology) Running from 2014 to 2020 a single "framework programme" implemented through "work programmes" of 1-2 years €80 billion budget (~104 billion US$) Focus on societal challenges and innovation (health, clean energy, transport…) Open to international cooperation (countries outside EU)
  • 4. Slide 03 H2020 – new rules Two-stage evaluation (to be confirmed) , 6-months time-to-grant No paper documents, specific rules for non-profit organisations New “financial instruments” (different ways of financing) Open Disruptive Innovation STREPs, IPs… SME instrument Prizes FET Open PCP PPPs Coop. w/ EIT Responsible I JTIs Networking Pilots A & B instruments BUT goals have not changed: growth, jobs, competitiveness
  • 5. Slide 04 H2020 – international aspects International participation (outside EU) approach confirmed General principle of reciprocity ??? “Rich” countries can participate but get no funding, “developing” countries can participate and get funding from the EU (…but the list of “rich” and “developing” countries is not yet defined) Intellectual Property Rights: as general rule, IP generated from EU-funded projects should be first exploited in Europe
  • 6. Slide 05 H2020 – timeline Legal documents and guidelines ready: First calls for proposals: end 2013 first half 2014 Selection of proposals and contract negotiation (6-months) First projects start: second half 2014 The Workprogramme 2014-15 will define all the details
  • 7. Slide 06 H2020 – what is inside? Excellent Science Industrial leadership Societal challenges
  • 8. Slide 07 H2020 – what is inside? Industrial leadership Components and systems Next generation computing Research on services is here Future Internet Content technologies and information management Advanced interfaces and robots Key Enabling Technologies: Micro- nano-electronics and photonics
  • 9. Slide 08 Research on services In the 2013 workprogramme: (not yet Horizon 2020) Innovative and self-adaptive Internet-based services using agile software technologies and tools for any phase of the service lifecycle and exploiting widely distributed computing architectures, large distributed data sets and smart sensors. This work should take into account the social, open and collaborative dimensions of software development and service provisioning Expected Impact: increasing Europe's ability to design and deliver innovative services with strong user engagement through better involvement of SMEs and individual researchers/developers. What can we expect in 2014-15?
  • 10. Slide 09 Research on services – some trends The Cloud is the platform of choice for Services Linked/Open/Social data, Smart Objects are the data sources for services Service quality (reliability, resilience, auditability, privacy, security, scalability…) Service modeling, Service management and variability management Open source a key enabling factor in software-based services
  • 11. Slide 10 Research on services – some examples In BETaaS a platform will be developed for the execution of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications built on top of services deployed in a “local cloud” of gateways. Scalability, security, dependability, context and resource awareness, and quality of service (QoS) will be embedded “by design” into the platform. Validation will be done through experiments targeting the Smart City and Home Automation use cases. The goal of the Broker@Cloud project is to develop a framework that will equip cloud service intermediaries with advanced methods and mechanisms for continuous quality assurance and optimization of software-based cloud services. The framework will allow enterprise cloud service brokers to monitor the obligations of providers towards consumers, as well as to detect opportunities for optimising service consumption. The MIDAS project aims to implement an integrated framework for the automation and intelligent management of Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) testing. The framework is available as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution on a cloud infrastructure and supports all the testing activities: generation, execution, result analysis, planning and scheduling COMPOSE will create an ecosystem for unleashing the power lying within the vast amount of internet connected smart objects by enabling easy construction of services based on these objects. COMPOSE technology will enable standardized access to such objects, the creation of base services, combine them into composite services, and finally building applications stemming from and operating on smart objects. The goal of CloudScale is to aid service providers in analysing, predicting and resolving scalability issues, i.e. support scalable service engineering. The project extends existing and develops new solutions that support the handling of scalability problems of softwarebased services.

  • 19. Slide 18 Rules for Participation: what’s new? (1) 1. A SINGLE SET OF RULES  Adapted for the whole research and innovation cycle  Covering all research programmes and funding bodies  Aligned to the Financial Regulation, coherent with other new EU Programmes. 2. ONE PROJECT - ONE FUNDING RATE.   Maximum of 100% of direct costs (except for actions close to market, where a 70% maximum will apply) Indirect eligible costs: a flat rate of 20% of direct eligible costs 3. SIMPLE EVALUATION CRITERIA •Excellence – Impact - Implementation (Excellence only, for the ERC) 4. NEW FORMS OF FUNDING aimed at innovation: pre-commercial procurement, inducement prizes, dedicated loan and equity instruments. 5. INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION: facilitated but better protecting EU interests.
  • 20. Slide 19 Rules for Participation: what’s new? (2) 6. SIMPLER RULES FOR GRANTS: broader acceptance of participants accounting practices for direct costs, flat rate for indirect costs, no time-sheets for personnel working full time on a project, possibility of output-based grants. 7. FEWER, BETTER TARGETED CONTROLS AND AUDITS  Lowest possible level of requirements for submission of audit certificates without undermining sound financial management;  Audit strategy focused on risk and fraud prevention. 8. IMPROVED RULES ON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY  Balance between legal security and flexibility;  Tailor-made IPR provisions for new forms of funding;  A new emphasis on open access to research publications. Beyond the Rules: further simplified provisions in the Grant Agreement and implementing procedures to facilitate access to Horizon 2020 (eg. common IT platform).
