"Physics Towards Horizon 2020" - Ana Proykova

  1. 1. PHYSICS TOWARDS HORIZON2020 Ana Proykova ESFRI & FET advisory group H2020
  2. 2. Layout with abbreviations • ESFRI • FET • H2020 • Physicists in H2020
  3. 3. European strategy forum on research infrastructures ESFRI (formed in 2002) The mission of ESFRI is to support a coherent and strategy-led approach to policy-making on research infrastructures in Europe, and to facilitate multilateral initiatives leading to the better use and development of research infrastructures, at EU and international level.
  4. 4. Ms and AS have two delegates to ESFRI One - working at the respective ministry of science or/and technology One scientist from academia (university or research institute)
  5. 5. ESFRI Roadmap
  6. 6. FET = future and emerging technology Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) go beyond what is known! Visionary thinking can open up promising avenues towards powerful new technologies. The visionary aspects and exploratory characteristics of FET might make it sound like a kind of magic, but the mission of FET is actually very concrete: to turn Europe's excellent science base into a competitive advantage.
  7. 7. What are advisory groups for? Advisory group (AG) experts provide high quality and timely advice to the Commission services during the preparation of the Horizon 2020 work programme. 15 (thematic) +4 (horizontal) AGs http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/
  8. 8. Thematic advisory groups Excellence science 1) 'Future and Emerging Technologies (FET)'; 2) Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions on skills, training and career development'; 3) 'Research infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures)'; 'Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies’: 4) 'Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)’ 5)'Nanotechnologies'; 'Advanced materials'; 'Biotechnology'; Advanced manufacturing and processing'; 6) 'Space'; …… up to 15
  9. 9. Cross cutting AGs International Cooperation Science with and for society (SWAFS) Gender Societal challenges
  10. 10. Three pillars The Horizon 2020 programme consists of three core themes or 'pillars': Excellent science Industrial leadership Societal challenges
  11. 11. Excellent Science (Physics) - FET = future and emerging technology - Focus should be put in applying for Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) and European Research Council (ERC) fellowships. These account for 25% of Horizon2020 funding (17,55 B euros). - Research Infrastructures grants should also be a great focus of the community (3,23% of the Horizon2020 budget, i.e. 2,27 B euros).
  12. 12. However The Physics community should NOT ignore opportunities that can be presented in the other two pillars (Industrial leadership, Societal challenges), since Pillar 1 is less than a third of Horizon2020 Applying for calls in the other two Pillars will require enhanced efforts in networking with industry (in the case of Pillar 2) and with scientists from other disciplines (in the case of Pillar 3).
  13. 13. Future and Emerging Technologies (FET, Pillar 1) Specific challenge: Supporting a large set of early stage, high risk visionary science and technology collaborative research projects is necessary for the successful exploration of new foundations for radically new future technologies. Nurturing fragile ideas requires an agile, risk-friendly and highly interdisciplinary research approach, expanding well beyond the strictly technological disciplines. Recognising and stimulating the driving role of new high-potential actors in research and innovation, such as women, young researchers and high-tech SMEs, is also important for nurturing the scientific and industrial leaders of the future. Scope: Proposals are sought for collaborative research
  14. 14. Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT, Pillar 2) ICT calls Sensor networks in hostile environments Low radioactivity tracing Photonics: Photodetectors (large area, small pixels) // Extreme photonics (lasers/mirrors) Cryogenic detectors (MKIDs, TES) Materials of extreme radiopurity Space
  15. 15. Work Programmes 2014-2015 (almost no changes) 2016-2017 (under strategic discussions) 2018-2019 2020 Hadron Physics: 3 categories of activities: •  networking •  transnational access and/or service •  joint research
  16. 16. Networking activities - Physics 1.  MAN: Management of the Consortium 2.  THURIC: Theory of Ultra Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions 3.  ENCstudy: Feasibility study foran electron-nucleon collider in Europe 4.  EPOS:Exciting Physics Of Strong Interactions 5.  MesonNet: Meson Physics in Low-Energy QCD 6.  SPHERE: Strange ParOcles in HadronicEnvironment Research in Europe 7.  FAIRnet: A worldwide research networking activity forexperiments on QCD at FAIR 8.  SaporeGravis: Heavy flavouredprobes of deconfined QCD matter 9.  LEANNIS: Low-energy antikaon-nucleon and -nucleiinteraction studies 10.  Lattice QCD: Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics
  17. 17. Flagships internal calls Graphene The Graphene Flagship brings together an academic-industrial consortium aiming at a breakthrough for technological innovation. Human Brain Project The HBP will develop six ICT platforms, dedicated respectively to Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation, High Performance Computing, Medical Informatics, Neuromorphic Computing and Neurorobotics. In all cases, the platforms will build on existing capabilities, some but not all developed by the HBP partners.
