  4. 4. Keynote Addresses Isabel Allgeyer, Deputy Director European Programmes, BEIS Simon Edmonds, Deputy Executive Chair & Chief Business Officer, Innovate UK
  5. 5. Vision and Objectives Horizon Europe what does UK association mean? March 2021
  6. 6. What does association mean? ü Equivalent terms for participation for UK and EU entities ü UK organisations can have continued access to collaborative R&I funding, infrastructure and markets via the Horizon Programme ü UK organisations can lead and influence key collaborative projects ü UK experts can take part in evaluations ü UK Government participates in Programme Committees and helps define the strategic direction of the Programme
  7. 7. Structure of the agreement Participation in Union Programmes is one Part within the broader UK-EU agreement (the TCA). This Part (Part 5) sets out the arrangements for the UK’s future participation in Union Programmes. The terms of the UK’s participation in individual programmes are included in a protocol to the agreement (published separately under ‘declarations’). Protocol I sets out terms of participation in Horizon Europe (and other programmes) UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement Part 4 Part 5 – Particip ation in Union Progra mmes Part 6 Protocol I Protocol II
  8. 8. What does it all mean? • Participation – UK entities will have equivalent rights to those entities from Member States • Access – UK entities will be able to access funding from all parts of the Programme, including ERC, MCSA and the majority of EIC (not EIC equity fund) – Work programme level exclusions only in exceptional and justifiable cases • Governance – UK will have attendance and speaking rights on programme governance structures, e.g. programme committees
  9. 9. Participation & access • UK entities will be able to compete for funding on equivalent terms to those of Member States. This means that the vast majority of UK applicants would have a very similar user experience as they had in relation to previous Framework Programmes such as Horizon 2020. • UK entities will be able to participate in all areas of the Horizon Europe Programme, including ERC, MCSA and the grant only actions in EIC. The only exceptions to this are: The EIC Fund - UK has decided not to participate in EIC fund/equity elements of EIC. - This means that UK entities will only have access to grant elements of the EIC. Duly justified exclusions - As in previous Horizon Programmes, the EU reserves the right to limit the participation of Associated Countries in specific calls. - This can only be done for ‘duly justified’ reasons – we can ask the Commission to justify any exclusion of AC entities from calls to the UK.
  10. 10. Governance • As an associate country, the UK will play an active role in the ongoing governance and development of the Horizon programme: – UK representatives & experts will take part in the relevant programme committees, expert groups etc. UK reps will have speaking rights, access to information and documentation etc. As with other associate countries, the UK will not have voting rights at these committees. – UK nationals will not be excluded from being experts or evaluators within the Programme – UK will participate as observers on the Board of Governors of the Joint Research Centre – UK will remain part of the European Research Area Committee
  11. 11. Institutionalised Partnerships – Article 187/185s • Eleven long-term partnerships: ten 187s (undertaken by private and public bodies) and one 185s (undertaken by Member States and Associated Countries) Cluster Health Digital, Industry and Space Climate, Energy and Mobility Food, Bioeconomy, natural resources, agriculture and environment 187s EU-Africa Global Health Innovative Health Initiative Key Digital Technologies Smart Networks and Services EuroHPC Transforming Europe’s Rail System Clean Aviation Single European Skies Clean Hydrogen Circular Bio-based Europe 185s European Metrology • The European Commission published the proposals for a regulation on 10 of these partnerships on 23 Feb (excluding EuroHPC) worth c.€10bn from the EU • It is anticipated that these will be adopted by the European Parliament (for 185s) and Council (187s) in Q4 2021 with opening calls following shortly afterwards
  12. 12. Institutionalised Partnerships – European Institute of Innovation and Technology Knowledge and Innovation Communities (EIT KICs) • The EIT brings together business, education and research bodies to create an environment conducive to innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe • It funds 8 long-term partnerships, KICs, each with a focus on a different societal challenge: New KICs for Culture and Creative Industries and Water, Marine and Maritime Sectors and Ecosystems are anticipated in 2022/3 and 2026 respectively. • Calls for projects starting this year have already closed but calls for projects starting in 2022 are open or due to be open later this year • Calls for proposals are genuinely open and you do not need to be an existing partner to submit a bid.
  13. 13. What are the next steps? EU to ratify the Horizon Europe Regulation •Likely to take place April 2021 UK and EU finalise Protocols (via Specialised Committee) •This step cannot be completed until the Regulation has been agreed UK formally associated to the Programme •Once Protocol has been agreed, the UK will be formally associated to the Programme
  14. 14. What should researchers and businesses do now? • This is a great outcome for researchers and businesses both in the UK and EU. • UK entities are eligible to apply from the start, including for the very first calls that have already launched – ERC first calls are open (deadline 8 April) • We encourage everyone to begin to prepare consortia and bids for when the Programme formally begins. • Commission Q&A on UK participation in Horizon (https://ec.europa.eu/info/files/qa-uks- participation-horizon-europe_en) confirms UK eligibility from the first calls
  15. 15. Horizon Europe Clusters – webinar series, 22/23 and 25 March ’21 https://eur.cvent.me/PWA9E European Research and Innovation Days, 23 – 24 June 2021 https://research-innovation-days.ec.europa.eu

  37. 37. Next steps I’m interested in exploring the opportunity, what should I do? § Contact the relevant NCP to discuss your proposal idea and discuss its relevance to the Calls for Proposals § Prepare a proposal summary § Approach potential partners § Attend relevant webinars and info days § European Innovation Council – March 18-19 § NCP Cluster-focused events – March 22-25 § EU HEu implementation events – April/May § EU Research & Innovation Days – June 23-24
  38. 38. CPI experiences from winning Horizon 2020 Bids Interpret the call Start early! And Start early! Decide on leading a bid versus joining a consortium (pros and cons) Understand the type of action and scope Ensure proposal is fully in scope and seek help and support from NCPs Contribute to shaping of the work programmes Join and actively participate in pan-European working groups to shape future work programmes and calls Worth the investment of resource and time Consortium Build/be part of a high- quality consortium that meets all the needs of the project and the call. Seek support from NCPs and EU networks Must include a good mix of innovation and exploitation partners, with representation as specified in the call
  39. 39. The best ways to form winning teams Being an effective networker is much more useful than submitting a profile into a portal and awaiting contacts. • Use your existing professional networks – if you don’t know who the sector leaders are in Europe then you should find out • Use Linked In to connect to people from possible partners • Join the relevant Partnership if any, ask your NCP for details • Search CORDIS for previous, related projects and contact the participants. All projects must disseminate their results and often hold workshops, etc. • Join the relevant networks and associations – again ask your NCP for suggestions • Be an active member – say ‘hi’ when you join the virtual room. Ask questions, support others’ opinions, act as if you are already well known to all in the virtual room • Volunteer to draft working papers, take notes, send in useful information – be helpful • Speak up at workshops – demonstrate Thought Leadership • Show that you would be a valuable partner for collaborative projects and that without you they won’t win – you have the secret sauce that is necessary for their success
