03 horizon 2020 european commission

  1. 1. The New EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020 EXCELLENT SCIENCE HORIZON 2020
  2. 2. The Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020: European Council Conclusions, 8 February 2013 Key challenge: stabilise the financial and economic system while taking measures to create economic opportunities 1. Smart & inclusive growth (€451 billion) 2. Sustainable growth, natural resources (€373 billion) 3. Security and citizenship (€16 billion) 4. Global Europe (€58 billion) 5. Administration (€61.6 billion) Education, Youth, Sport Connecting Europe Cohesion Competitive Business SMEs HORIZON 2020 TOTAL €960 billion
  3. 3. Investment in R&D is part of the solution to exit from the economic crises
  4. 4. What is Horizon 2020? • A core part of key European policy initiatives (Europe 2020, Innovation Union, European Research Area): − Responding to the economic crisis to invest in future jobs and growth − Addressing people’s concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environment − Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology • Budget of just over €70 billion in constant prices (79 billion in current prices including inflation)
  5. 5. What's new • A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives* • Coupling research to innovation – from research to retail, all forms of innovation • Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport • Simplified access for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond ⃰ The 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7), innovation aspects of Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)
  6. 6. Three priorities Excellent science Industrial leadership Societal challenges
  7. 7. Priority 1 Excellent science Why: • World class science is the foundation of tomorrow’s technologies, jobs and wellbeing • Europe needs to develop, attract and retain research talent • Researchers need access to the best infrastructures
  8. 8. European Research Council (ERC) Frontier research by the best individual teams 13 095 Future and Emerging Technologies Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation 2 696 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) Opportunities for training and career development 6 162 Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructure) Ensuring access to world-class facilities 2 488 Proposed funding (€ million, 2014-2020)
  9. 9. Excellent Science – European Research Council Horizon2020 Objectives for 2020: • The best researchers are participating in the ERC’s competitions • ERC funding has led directly to scientific publications of the highest quality and to the commercialisation of innovative technologies / ideas • ERC has contributed significantly to making Europe a more attractive environment for the world’s best scientists
  10. 10. Excellent Science – European Research Council Horizon2020 Will continue: • to operate on a ‘bottom-up basis • to have ‘research excellence’ as sole criterion • to fund ‘individual teams’ • to provide funding for starting researchers to make transition to independence • to support new ways of working with potential to create breakthrough results New for Horizon 2020: • Higher budget to build on success of FP7 grant schemes • Improved governance with a full-time president based in Brussels
  11. 11. Excellent Science – Future and Emerging Technologies Horizon2020 • Expanded from ICT to be used as cross-cutting instrument • Supports frontier research: • alternative ideas, concepts or paradigms of risky or non-conventional nature
  12. 12. Excellent Science – Future and Emerging Technologies Horizon2020 Three strands: • FET Open • fostering novel ideas • FET Pro-Active • nurturing emerging themes and communities • FET Flagships • tackling grand interdisciplinary science and technology challenges
  13. 13. Excellent Science – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Horizon2020 New for Horizon 2020: • Simplification and rationalisation of activities: Goes from 9 actions to 4 broader lines of activity… • Improved participation of businesses and other socio-economic actors • Increased possibility of portability of grants • Stronger emphasis on communicating results and on outreach activities • New name …
  14. 14. Excellent Science – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Horizon2020 Innovative Training Networks - ITN • Training Networks, European Industrial Doctorates, Joint Doctorates Individual Fellowships - IF • Support for experienced researchers undertaking international and inter-sector mobility Research and Innovation Staff Exchange - RISE • International and inter-sector cooperation through the exchange of staff Co-funding of programmes - COFUND • Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (doctoral programmes,fellowship programmes)
  15. 15. Excellent Science – Research Infrastructures Horizon2020 1. Developing European Research Infrastructures for 2020 and beyond • Developing new world-class Research Infrastructures • Integrating and opening national and regional Research Infrastructures of pan-European interest • Development, deployment and operation of ICT based e-Infrastructures 2. Fostering the innovation potential of Research Infrastructures and their human resources 3. Reinforcing European RI policy and international cooperation
  16. 16. Excellent Science – Research Infrastructures Horizon2020 Example: Developing new world-class Research Infrastructures • Support the conceptual design of new research infrastructures, which are of a clear European dimension and interest: • Support the preparatory or pre-implementation phase of projects suggested by ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures)
