1 European Research Council - a new element in the UE research policy? Michał Kleiber President of the Polish Academy of Sciences Member of the European Research Council Senior Advisor to the President of Poland Taipei, September 2008

2 Limited career opportunities Appealing career opportunities from third countries attracting European graduates Dropping private R&D investment Fragmentation of research and funding activities lack of competition Complex Administration: not helping to attract and maintain the best researchers Fewer students taking Science subjects Challenges for Research in Europe

3 European Science Policy Paradox How to do ground-breaking research with: no significant investment no scientists involved in policy-making

4 Why an ERC ? 1.93% of Europes GDP is invested in R&D compared with 2.59% in US and 3.15% in Japan (European Commission, July 2005) US scientists dominate in each of the 21 subject areas of science (Basu, 2004) Public opinion influenced by the most spectacular, ground- breaking achievements

13 Frontier Research Classical distinctions between basic and applied research have lost much of their relevance at a time when many emerging areas of science and technology (e.g. biotechnology, ICT, materials and nanotechnology) often embrace substantial elements of both. Frontier research pursues questions irrespective of established disciplinary boundaries. It may well involve multi- or trans- disciplinary research that brings together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds, with different theoretical and conceptual approaches, techniques, methodologies and instrumentation, perhaps even different goals and motivations. The task of funding agencies is confined to supporting the best researchers with the most exciting ideas. Need to confront the intrinsic risk involved in frontier research projects.

14 ERC challenges Avoid outmoded distinctions : Between basic and applied research Between science and technology Between traditional disciplines

15 Significant funding for ambitious frontier research projects – all fields of research, cross-disciplinary and unconventional (high-risk) projects Simple and flexible application procedures Scientific excellence (of person and proposal) as sole criterion Investigator-driven research – individual research teams led by a single Principal Investigator are supported (PI located in or moving to EU – no nationality criterion – open to the entire world) Grants are awarded to the host institution that engages the Principal Investigator The host institution guarantees the Principal Investigators independence and provides the research environment to carry out the project and manage its funding Special emphasis on young researchers An ERC grant can cover up to 100% of the total eligible direct costs of the research plus a contribution towards indirect costs, which cannot exceed 20% of the total eligible direct costs ERC – Guiding Principles

16 Evaluation Sole criteria for success – "excellence" of proposal and principal investigator; critical importance of the evaluation panels and process. Setting up the peer review system for the evaluation process – establishing across the three domains a number of panels covering a broad range of topics – rather than being focused on traditional disciplines, ensuring that consideration given to high quality, interdisciplinary proposals. Selection of Panel Chairs and members of the highest international reputation in EU and beyond. Enthusiasm amongst Europe's scientists towards the ERC and ScC strategy seen in unprecedented acceptance approaching 95% of the persons invited to participate in the peer review evaluation panels.

17 ERC Grants The ERC Starting Independent Researchers Grants (ERC Starting Grants; StG). The objective is to provide adequate support to the independent careers of excellent researchers, whatever their nationality, located in or moving to the EU and associated countries, who are at the stage of establishing and leading their first research team or program. The ERC Advanced Investigator Grants (ERC Advanced Grants; AdG). The objective is to encourage and support excellent, innovative investigator-initiated research projects by leading advanced investigators across the EU member states and countries associated to the framework programme. It will complement the Starting Grant scheme by targeting the population of researchers who have already established themselves as being independent leaders in their own right.

18 Who can apply ? Individual Teams The Team Leader (Principal Investigator) has: the power to assemble his/her research group, the freedom to choose the research topic. Individual teams should consist of a grouping of researchers which meets the needs of the project, without artificial administrative constraints; thus members may be drawn from one or several legal entities, from either within or across national boundaries, including third countries.

19 Principal Investigator 27 EU Member States Associated Countries (e.g. NO, IS, CH, IL), including ACC (TR, HR) Team Members 27 EU Member States Associated Countries (e.g. NO, IS, CH, IL), including ACC (TR, HR) International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) Other industrialised countries, e.g. Australia, Canada, Japan, USA, Taiwan Who can apply?

20 Possibility of funding 27 EU Member States Associated Countries (e.g. NO, IS, CH, IL), including ACC (TR, HR) International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) Funded only if indispensable Other industrialised countries Funding of International Teams

21 The Principal Investigator (PI) The PI is the team's lead researcher who has the scientific responsibility for the corresponding project. He/she can be of any age, nationality or country of residence. In order to be eligible for a grant, the PI must be independent or, for the ERC Starting Grant, at the stage at which she/he is establishing independence (i.e. beginning to lead or leading an independent research team) or, depending on the field, establishing an independent research programme. Independence implies that the PI has the authority to: Apply for funding independently of senior colleagues; Direct the research project, manage the funding and make appropriate resource allocation decisions; Publish as senior author and invite as co-authors only those who have contributed substantially to the reported work; Supervise team members, including research students or others; Have access to reasonable space and facilities for conducting the research.

22 ERC Starting Grant - Profile of the Principal Investigator (PI) The PI must have been awarded his/her first PhD (or equivalent doctoral degree) more than 2 and less than 9 years prior to the deadline of the call for proposals. Extensions to this period may be allowed in case of eligible career breaks which must be properly documented: maternity (1 year per child born after the PhD award) and paternity leave (accumulation of actual time off, max. 1 year per child born after the PhD award) and leave taken for long-term illness, national service. Leave taken for unavoidable statutory reasons (e.g. clinical qualifications) may also count as an extension. No allowance will be made for part-time working (2 years of half-time working count as 2 full-time years). The cumulative eligibility period should not in any case surpass 12 years following the award of the first PhD.

23 ERC Advanced Grant - Profile of the Principal Investigator (PI) PIs applying for the ERC Advanced Grant must be established research leaders who have made exceptional contributions to research in terms of originality and significance. They must be active researchers with an outstanding track record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years. There is little prospect of an application succeeding in the absence of such an outstanding track record. In most fields, PIs of ERC Advanced Grant proposals are expected to demonstrate a record of research achievements in the last 10 years matching at least one or more of the following benchmarks (depending on the field): Normally 10 publications as senior author (or in those fields where alphabetic order of authorship is the norm, joint author) in major international peerreviewed multidisciplinary scientific journals, and/or in the leading international peer-reviewed journals of their respective fields; Normally 3 major research monographs, of which at least one is translated into another language. This benchmark is relevant to research fields where publication of monographs is the norm (e.g. humanities and social sciences).

24 ERC Advanced Grant - Profile of the Principal Investigator (PI) Other alternative benchmarks that may be considered (individually or in combination) as indicative of an exceptional record and recognition in the last 10 years: Normally 5 granted patents; Normally 10 invited presentations in well-established internationally organised conferences and advanced schools; Normally 3 research expeditions led by the applicant; Normally 3 well-established international conferences or congresses where the applicant was involved in their organisation as a member of the steering and/or organising committee; Internationally recognition through scientific prizes/awards or membership in well-recognised Academies.

25 Evaluation Criteria - Principal Investigator Quality of research output/track-record: How well qualified is the Principal Investigator (and any co-Investigator if applicable) to conduct the project (reviewers are expected to evaluate the quality of the prior work such as published results in top peer review journals as well as other elements of the Principal Investigators CV). To what extent are the publications and achievements of the Principal Investigator groundbreaking and demonstrative of independent creative thinking and capacity to go significantly beyond the state of the art? To what extent does the quality and quantity of funding the Principal Investigator has attracted during the last ten years demonstrate his/her reputation as a performer of ground-breaking research? Intellectual capacity and creativity: To what extent does the Principal Investigator's record of research, collaborations, project conception, supervision of students and publications demonstrate that he/she is able to confront major research challenges in the field, and to initiate new productive lines of thinking?

26 Evaluation Criteria - Research project Ground-breaking nature of the research: Does the proposed research address important challenges at the frontiers of the field(s) addressed? Does it have suitably ambitious objectives, which go substantially beyond the current state of the art (e.g. including inter- and transdisciplinary developments and novel or unconventional concepts and/or approaches)? How well conceived and organized is the proposed activity? Potential impact: Does the research open new and important, scientific, technological or scholarly horizons? Will the project significantly enhance the research environment and capabilities for frontier research in Europe (including the host institution)?

27 Evaluation Criteria - Research project Methodology: Is the outlined scientific approach (including the activities to be undertaken by the individual team members) feasible? Is the proposed research methodology (including when pertinent the use of instrumentation, other type of infrastructures etc.) comprehensive and appropriate to the project? Will it enable the goals of the project convincingly to be achieved within the timescales and resources proposed and the level of risk associated with a challenging research project? High-gain/High-risk balance: Does the proposed research involve highly novel and/or unconventional methodologies, whose high risk is justified by the possibility of a major breakthrough with an impact beyond a specific research domain/discipline?

28 Evaluation Criteria - Research Environment Contribution of the research environment to the project: Does the host environment provide most of the infrastructure necessary for the research to be carried out? Is it in a position to provide an appropriate intellectual environment and infrastructural support and to assist in achieving the ambitions for the project and the Principal Investigator? Participation of other legal entities: If it is proposed that other legal entities participate in the project, in addition to the applicant legal entity, is their participation fully justified by the scientific added value they bring to the project?

29 The Scientific Council has established, based on world-wide practice, the following indicative budget for each of the 3 main scientific domains: Physical Sciences and Engineering: 45% Biological and Life Sciences: 40% Social Sciences and Humanities: 15% A reserve in the overall budget, not exceeding 20% of the total, may be retained for funding proposals that have been judged of comparable merit but beyond the budget allocated to the specific scientific domain, and can be used to further promote frontier research and interdisciplinarity.

33 Indicative statistics – ERC Advanced Grants

34 ERC has influenced the discussion at the national level on how to support high risk projects (changing research funding culture). Research institutions as well as industry have intensified discussion on the increasing need of frontier research to close the existing and growing knowledge gap. ERC addresses researchers all over the world. A high proportion of non- European reviewer and panel members. ERC as a global player. ERC is a learning and flexible institution. The ERC will provide financial support for projects, studies, services and associated initiatives for the monitoring, assessment and evaluation of the ERC Activities. BUT measures are needed: to simplify the evaluation procedure to reduce the number of submitted proposals to increase resources … Preliminary assessment of the wider ERC impact
