  8. 8. Main Actions: More ICT R&D&I More pooling of resources
  9. 9. 3 pillars: 1.Excellence 2.Competitiveness 3.Societal Challenges Health, Transport, Energy, Food, Climate, Innovation & Reflection & Inclusion, Security
  10. 10. agreed in Parliament and Council http://consilium.europa. European Parliament Council of the European Union
  11. 11. including the Budget... ~ EUR 77bn 2014-2020
  12. 12. - Continue former ICT Policy support programme (part of the CIP, Competitiveness and Innovation Programme) -Open disruptive innovation scheme ~ 5% -Inducement prizes -Simpler entry/exit depending on success -Better connections between R&I, between technology-driven and application-driven approaches -PPPs to cover innovation projects Innovation instruments
  13. 13. Future Enabling Technologies (incl. FET Flagships Graphene & Human Brain Project) Key Enabling Technologies (e.g. semiconductors, photonics, embedded systems) Data & Content Technologies Applied ICT Research ICT R&I Support – Upcoming priority areas
  14. 14. 1. High-performance computing 2. Open Science (Infrastructures and Open Access) 3. Open Data Horizontal Enablers
  15. 15. 1. High-Performance Computing
  16. 16. Why's HPC on the Agenda ? Weather, Climate & Earth Sciences Life Sciences and Health Fundamental sciences: Physics, Chemistry, Material Sciences, Astrophysics Applications. Industrial & Engineering Application for transport and energy
  17. 17. Applications and codes Deep, diverse HPC user experience and leading capabilities in power-efficient microelectronics processor designs interconnects and mass storage systems (sub)system integration software tools Potential openness and knowledge transfer to industry not yet exploited HPC in Europe: Potentials
  18. 18. HPC in Europe: Problems EU lost 10% HPC capabilities 2007-2009 Japan overtook EU-27 in capacity Fragmentation of EU efforts across MS High reliance on foreign components European IPR benefiting others
  19. 19. High-Performance Computing: Europe's Place in a Global Race COM(2012)045, 15/02/2012, Governance at EU level: Industrial Technology Platform, PRACE and centres of excellence Double HPC investment (MS, EU, industry) Tools: Resource pooling and pre- commercial procurement Key Policy Actions
  20. 20. July 2012 Commission Communication & Recommendation to MS on Scientific Information [in H2020 and beyond] 2. Open Science
  21. 21. Open Access Goals 2014: OA policies in all MS 2016: 60% OA in Europe 2014-2020: H2020 100% OA

  23. 23. Now it's the infrastructure, stupid
  24. 24. ”the data themselves become the infrastructure”.
  25. 25. ”the data themselves become the infrastructure”. Digital European Research Area
  26. 26. plus
  27. 27. 3. Open Data
  28. 28. What is Open Data? 1. bulk download for free 2. reuse rights (incl. Commercial)
  29. 29. Why do we care? Computers Internet Automation = Open Data possible & useful
