4 The European Engineering Industries Association Snapshot of Orgalime … Aim: be the N°1 voice of the engineering industry on selected issues affecting multiple engineering sectors Early warning and monitoring Coordinate and lobby industry positions Service European Sector Associations: 22 (+ EFFRA) Publications: general conditions, guides on legislation… Orgalime in numbers: 50 issues with focus on industrial policy, technical, energy and environment legislation, trade, R&D, legal issues, publications 45 positions per year 3 million budget (52% membership and 48% earned income) 27 staff

5 The European Engineering Industries Association Presentations Structure EU funding for Research and Demonstration Horizon Public Private Partnerships EU support to innovative SMEs COSME: a support programme Financing opportunities EU and regional funding for innovation Smart Specialisation in the making How to grasp upcoming opportunities Orgalime networks results

6 The European Engineering Industries Association EU Research Frameworks EU research funding and facilitation so far Framework Programmes coordinated EU funding on research since 1980s FP7 concludes in December 2013 SMEs participated in different programmes Transnational actions boosted Mind-set shift to Horizon 2020 Aims at bridging the research to innovation gap (e.g. pilot projects) Fosters industrys participation Gathers scattered programmes to one

7 The European Engineering Industries Association Horizon 2020 Horizon 2020 (70 billion) To be implemented in Three pillars: Societal Challenges million Industrial Leadership million Excellence in Science million Funding Rates 100% reimbursement for eligible costs with broader acceptance of usual accounting practices 70% ceiling for actions closer to the market (prototyping, testing) 25% flat rate of total direct eligible costs to cover indirect costs One project = One rate Basic principles observed Technology concept formulated Experimental proof of concept Validation technology in laboratory Technology validation in relevant environment Demonstration in relevant environment Demonstration in operational environment System Complete and qualified Successful mission operations

8 The European Engineering Industries Association Public Private Partnerships Recovery Plan PPPS in Horizon 2020 Factories of the Future, Energy-Efficient Buildings, European Green Cars Increased funding in industrial areas that it was falling FoF PPP: 59% industrial participation Overall change in mind-set of innovation funding PPPs multiplying in future New PPPs on process industries, robotics, photonics, biotech and high performance computing In 2017 PPPs for materials for renewables, railways and the maritime industry.

9 The European Engineering Industries Association Orgalime network results Advocacy to EU policy makers forming R&D policy Simplification Industry driven priorities Disseminating information How is Smart Specialisation treated Taskforce on Advanced Manufacturing EFFRA: Active participation in Factories of the Future EFFRA Last FoFs call: biggest one in a framework programme (230 million) EFFRA introduced demo-targeted projects

10 The European Engineering Industries Association COSME Programme (1) COSME supports SMEs competitiveness improvement Access to third countries Access to finance Support SMEs to improve competitiveness European Enterprise Network European Intellectual Property Rights Helpdesk Access to third markets 600 partners in 54 countries = capacity to reach 2 million SMEs IPR SME Helpdesks for China, ASEAN and Mercosur
