  3. 3. Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation Overall  UK  Performance  in  FP7     EU  provides  up  to  20%  of  HEIs‘ external  research  income     UK  received  15.2%  of  FP7  spend  (second  only  to  Germany  –   16.1%)     UK  parNcipates  in  more  projects  than  any  other  Member   State   UK  return  for  Rail  projects  around  15%!    
  4. 4. The  basics!   Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation   The  European  Commission  supports  collaboraNve  Research  and  InnovaNon   projects  by  means  of  grants.   Calls  are  launched,  inviNng  applicants  to  submit  project  proposals  which  fall   within  the  remit  of  the  Work  Programme.   The  collaborators  form  a  consorNum  which  generally  include  three   independent  partners  from  different  EU  member  or  associated  states.   DocumentaNon  for  parNcular  calls  for  proposals  can  be  downloaded  from  the   ParNcipant  Portal  [hWp://ec.europa.eu/research/parNcipants/portal]  
  5. 5.

  6. 6. Two-­‐Stage  Proposals   Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation Stage  1:     Outline  proposals  [max  15  pages  +  list  of  partners]   Evaluated  remotely   Limited  criteria  (Excellence  and  Impact)     Minimum  thresholds  of  4  out  of  5  for  both  criteria   Submission  deadline  at  28th  March?   Successful  proposals  are  invited  to  submit  a  complete  proposal  in  Stage  2
