Eco-Innovation evaluation criteria

  1. 1. This Project is funded by the Improved SME Competitiveness and European Union Innovation ProjectECO-Innovation Workshop 13 July, 2011 Author: Dr. Thies Wittig – Expert
  2. 2. This Project is funded by the EU ECO-Innovation Eco-innovation is defined as "any form of innovation aiming at significant and demonstrable progress towards the goal of sustainable development, through reducing impacts on the environment or achieving a more efficient and responsible use of natural resources, including energy.”13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 2
  3. 3. This Project is funded by the EU Scope of the Call 2011 CIP Eco-Innovation will support projects: – Concerned with the first application or market replication of eco-innovative techniques, products, processes or practices, which – have already been technically demonstrated, but – due to remaining risks need incentives to penetrate significantly the market. CIP Eco-Innovation will also support market oriented activities related to the uptake of environmental technologies and eco-innovative activities by enterprises and the implementation of new or integrated approaches to Eco-Innovation.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 3

  5. 5. This Project is funded by the EU Life Cycle Assessment LCA helps to avoid resolving one environmental problem only to create others elsewhere, by taking a comprehensive approach in one consistent framework: – Considering the entire life cycle of a product from the extraction of resources, through production, use, and recycling, up to the disposal of waste; – Quantifying resources consumed as well as emissions that can be attributed to the product; – Providing indicators of the product‟s contribution to a wide range of environmental problems such as climate change, toxic pressures, and resource depletion.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 5

  7. 7. EC - CONTACT This Project is funded by the EU The EC offers a “pre-screening” of ideas. You may send a max 2 page project description to eaci-eco-innovation-enquiries@ec.europa.eu You will receive comments in the form of „general guidance‟ only. Second or revised versions are not accepted. You can do this until 26/8/2011.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 7

  9. 9. This Project is funded by the EU Evaluation Criteria - 1 Relevance of the actions proposed in view of the objectives established in the Call (score 0-10, minimum threshold 7): Innovation and environment. Importance of the action in relation to EU policies and priorities, - The extent to which the proposed solutions are innovative and/or technical advancement of the proposed solution, clearly beyond the prototype stage. Clear and substantial environmental benefits including resource efficiency … Considering and clearly involving and supporting the main target group of SMEs.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 9
  10. 10. This Project is funded by the EU Evaluation Criteria - 2 Quality of the proposed actions (score 0-10, minimum threshold 6): Structure, clarity, consistency and suitability of the proposed approach (definition of work packages, schedule and deliverables) to achieve the expected results. Composition, balance of skills and responsibilities of the team and its members. Project management structure, work plan, co-ordination and project team communications.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 10
  11. 11. This Project is funded by the EU Evaluation Criteria - 3 Impact on target audience, replication and impact on the market (score 0-10, threshold 6): Replication factor of the solution to be realised during the project and its potential for short- and medium-term replication. Appropriateness of the market assessment and of the approach to remove the identified market barriers to the eco-innovative solution. Quality of the planned exploitation and business approach.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 11
  12. 12. This Project is funded by the EU Evaluation Criteria - 4 Budget and cost-effectiveness (score 0-10, threshold 6): Appropriate level of effort (hours and budget) both per work package and per task and per partner considering the skills and responsibilities. Appropriate weight and justification of costs per cost category, notably equipment (including justification for the parts of the equipment linked to the innovative action). Coherence and transparency of the co-financing scheme.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 12
  13. 13. This Project is funded by the EU Evaluation Criteria - 5 European added value (score 0-10, threshold 6): Justification for and benefits of addressing the subject of the proposal at European level as opposed to purely national/regional/local projects. European dimension of the market barriers and how these barriers will be tackled. Level of European cooperation in the project.13 July 2011 Improved SME Competitiveness and Innovation Project 13
