  1. 1. SME in Horizon2020 – the new EU programme for research, development and innovation Sven Schade DG Enterprise and Industries European Commission Innovation Week, Oslo 18/10/2013
  2. 2. 2007 - 2013 CIP 3,6 1,1 2014-2020 Competitiveness Financial instruments In n FP7 R&D 54 2,4 COSME 1,4 ova t io n R&D 77 HORIZON 2020 R&DI A commitment to innovation, research, development – Only programmes that increase substantially in volume - All budgetary figures reflect the current state of discussion 15/10/2013
  3. 3. SMEs – EU's new darlings for innovation? 2007-2013 2014-2020 Total 8,9bn for SME Total 6,8bn for SMEs 15% = 4,8bn I Scientific Excellence Programme 'Cooperation' 20% = FP7 = 54bn 8,6bn Including SME instrument 2,8bn Programme 'capacities' Research for SME HORIZON 2020 = 77bn II Leadership in emerging and industrial technologies (LEIT) + Eurostars 0,3bn + III Societal challenges Incl. Eurostar 1,3bn CIP 3,6 SME projects (market replication ~0.7) Specific for SME (mia €) Base for agreed SMEtarget * En processus de finalisation
  4. 4. What's new in Horizon2020? 1. Supports activities closer to the market – 'more innovation' – 'procurement for innovation' – demonstration activities 2. Orients research, development and innovation towards 'societal challenges' and key technologies 3. Tries to integrate - and limit - support to SMEs innovation in these priorities
  5. 5. Take home… - More resources for SMEs in 2014-20. 8.9bn (+30%) under Horizon2020 compared to FP7/CIP - Target for participation in 'big' projects 'driven by science' from 5.8bn (+20%). - SMEs' interest driven projects are supported by: The SME instrument 2.8bn replacing "Research for SME" and "Market replication" (so far ~2.0bn) EUREKA/Eurostars volume 1.2bn (up from 0.4bn) 0.3bn (Horizon2020) + 0.9bn (participating countries)
  6. 6. SME instrument design ? Phase 1 Concept & Feasibility Assessment Idea to concept, risk assessment, technological & commercial feasibility Phase 2 Demonstration Market Replication R&D Pre-commercial procurement Commercialisation Demonstration, prototyping, testing , market replication, scaling up, miniaturisation, research IDEA continued support services throughout the project ~50.000€, lump sum Up to 2.5mio €, (likely ~1mio] 70% SME window EU financial facilities Quality label for successful projects, access to risk finance, indirect support MARKET
  7. 7. Which option for whom? Horizon 2020 Collaborative Research Orientation: R&D topics R&D driven projects - SMEs that have R&D services as core business; as partner in large projects - SMEs that can provide an 'application environment' for R&D results Eurostars Target: R&D intensive SME - Research intensive SMEs (>10%turnover) for concrete product development in transnational cooperations SME instrument Target: Business innovation motivated SMEs in the Societal Challenges / technology areas - SMEs & entrepreneurs with 'scalable', new business ideas in priority areas and capability to implement ambitious business plans Market opportunity driven projects
  8. 8. Structure and big themes Horizon2020 Excellent Science [~31.7%] Various science actions Marie Skłodowska Curie Scholarships Industrial Leadership [~22.1%] Leadership in emerging and industrial technologies (LEIT) (~13.6bn) (ICT + Biotech + nanotech + materials + manufacturing technologies + space) Access to risk finance Innovation in SME (~0.6bn) [Eurostars, cluster, policy learning, but not SME instrument]
  9. 9. Structure and big themes Horizon 2020 1. Societal challenges [~38.5%] Health, demographic change and wellbeing (~7.4bn) Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime and inland water research & the Bioeconomy (~3.8bn) Secure, clean and efficient energy (~5.9bn) Smart, green and integrated transport (~6.3bn) Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials (~3.1bn) Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies (~1.3bn) Secure societies-protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens (~1.7bn) Spreading excellence / EIT / JRC [~7.6%]
  10. 10. Take home… - The SME instrument is linked to Societal challenges and LEIT areas. Topics within the challenges shall be broad. - SME instrument proposals are selected based on 'business plans' and the expected economic impact. - Single company support is possible by the SME instrument – but the project has to show European added value. - Ideas outside societal challenges / LEIT can only be supported by EUREKA / Eurostars
  11. 11. Who supports if you have an idea? • The 'National Contact Points' for the different parts of Horizon2020 - But not specialis in SME instrument • The 'Enterprise Europe Network' is a specialist in SME opportunties – but lacks depth in themes  The two shall cooperate closely for your benefit
  12. 12. Convincing proposals Horizon 2020 Collaborative Research Orientation: R&D topics R&D driven projects - Call describes an issue to address Who participates? Large consortia What counts? Scientific excellence Evaluation is done once (deadline!) Eurostars Target: R&D intensive SME - Call describes possibility to do transnational R&D Who participates? Small transnational groups What counts? Technical excellence – market prospect Evaluation is done often (no-deadline!) SME instrument Target: Business innovation motivated SMEs in the Societal Challenges / technology areas - Market opportunity driven projects Call describes existing gap to attract investors to radical innovation Who participates? Single company (partners optional) What counts? Realisable economic impact Evaluation is done often (no deadline)
