5 Abteilung für Energie und Umwelttechnologien Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology Michael Hübner Smart Grids- Mirror Group Meeting March 22nd 2007, Brussels First Impressions Grids most times somehow a crosscutting issue; most not specialised on grid issue Depth of participation of Grid Companies, Suppliers, Technology Providers etc. different in the programmes Different programme strategies Similarities, Common goals possible Critical Mass for an ERA-Net

6 Abteilung für Energie und Umwelttechnologien Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology Michael Hübner Smart Grids- Mirror Group Meeting March 22nd 2007, Brussels ERA-Net Lessons learned

7 ERA-NETERA-NET Preliminary overview of joint calls under FP6 ERA-NET projects Giorgio Carlotti, DG RES EC- WS on Joint Calls, June 14th 2006

8 ERA-NETERA-NET Level of Ambition Selected CA projects, to 10/ Information exchange & best practices Common strategic issues Joint activities Joint/common calls (fixed for 2005/2006 to 10/05)

9 Abteilung für Energie und Umwelttechnologien Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology Michael Hübner Smart Grids- Mirror Group Meeting March 22nd 2007, Brussels To keep in Mind: ERA-Net is on Programming. (Goals, Strategies, linked to national policies) pulling together research strategies, coordinating national programmes….. to support the european Vision not a scientific issue not an issue of member states positions not an issue of finding the european solution

10 Abteilung für Energie und Umwelttechnologien Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology Michael Hübner Smart Grids- Mirror Group Meeting March 22nd 2007, Brussels How to reach Integration Policy making: Thematic focus Policy design: Procedural and functional focus Management: Focus on Implementation -> HOW? Design phase -> WHEN? operational phase -> WHAT? Assessment phase WHY? added-value likely InterestTrustCommitment WHY? potential for added-value Trial and Error Stop or Go decision

11 Abteilung für Energie und Umwelttechnologien Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology Michael Hübner Smart Grids- Mirror Group Meeting March 22nd 2007, Brussels Lessons learned The basis is the concrete interest of the programmes (strategies, focus at the moment, upcoming projects) Early start of common actions (inkl. Common calls) Learning by doing (the devil is in the detail) In the first step: no need for harmonisation of national rules (principle: each country finances its institutions) But clear agreements on common elements (eg. Common Call: joint guidelines, common evaluation procedures and experts, joint approval, ….)

12 ERA-NETERA-NET uAnalysis based on preliminary data and very different type of calls u15 calls have been launched to date, ~20 under preparation or planned in workprogrammes ~50% of ERA-NETs u Very different type of calls : – Regular call for yearly awards – Major Calls for transnational research projects, both for fundamental and industrial research in various areas (Biotechnology stands out) – Smaller pilot calls testing joint call mechanisms uAlmost 200 Million Euro foreseen, 80% in 3 projects u150 Organisations involved (15% of total), Most countries involved in FP6 are participating Building experience ERA-NETs start making an impact (Overview to June 2006)

13 ERA-NETERA-NET uManagement integration : The devil is in the detail – Allows to gather in depth knowledge of different national systems – Design issues : Objective, Target group, Type of project, Type of partnership, Focus on theme or not, Evaluation criteria, Funding mechanism – Implementation issues : Timing, Information, Evaluation (2-Steps), Contracting, Monitoring, Overall management (Decision making) uFinancial integration : Various mechanisms are tested – Most used is the VIRTUAL common pot – Some have used a REAL common pot – Mixed models have been developed u Scientific integration : How to select topics – Most joint calls are bottom-up, with a 2 step mechanism – Some calls have carefully identified priorities – Synergies and complementarities with EU RTD programme (FP7) ? Main issues affecting joint calls
