1 and the "Excellent Science" pillar
European Commission Research & Innovation

2 What is Horizon 2020? The new European Union programme for research and innovation for Coupling research to innovation Challenge based Strong focus on SMEs Major simplification An integrated programme coupling research to innovation – support from research to retail, bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives* Challenge based - tackling major challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport Strong focus on SMEs – 20% of budget for SMEs, new dedicated SME instrument Major simplification - for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond The Research Framework Programme, innovation aspects of Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)

3 H2020 scope Keeping flexibility where needed. etc.
Covering all H2020 research and innovation actions EU Financial Regulation Specific rules for participation Keeping flexibility where needed. Based on the new Financial Regulation and its Rules of Application; Coherent with the rules of the other EU programmes (CIP, art.185 initiatives, art. 187 initiatives, EIT, Euratom);

7 Work Programmes

8 New approach to work programmes and calls
Based on a "strategic programme" First Horizon 2020 calls with 12 focus areas Two year work programmes (€ 15 billion) Possibility of fine-tuning after the first year Less prescriptive calls (64 calls in 2014) Broader and fewer topics First call deadlines as from March 2014 Two year work programmes More advanced notice for applicants More than €15 billion available over the first two years of Horizon 2020 2014 budget = €7.7 billion, =€ 7.5 billion More strategic work programmes Focusing on areas where EU level action has greatest impact for society and citizens With a coherent set of actions from research to innovation Greater integration across different parts of Horizon 2020 Less prescriptive calls A strong challenge-based approach, thus being more open to innovative proposals Stronger emphasis on impact Cross-cutting issues mainstreamed (e.g. social sciences, gender) Stimulating inter-disciplinary projects

25 Link to other programmes

26 H vs Cohesion policy Horizon 2020 focuses on research and innovation Cohesion policy focuses on galvanising smart specialisation that will act as a capacity building instrument including research and innovation Based largely on individual R&D and innovation Projects Based on multiannual Programmes aiming to reduce regional disparities, including through close to the market competitive R&D and innovation efforts Awarded directly to beneficiaries Awarded through shared management exclusively to national and regional public intermediaries Through transnational competitive calls Non-competitive attribution to regional players based on strategic planning Overall, the reformed cohesion policy will make available up to EUR billion[1] to invest in Europe's regions, cities and the real economy. It will be the EU's principle investment tool for delivering the Europe 2020 goals: creating growth and jobs, tackling climate change and energy dependence, and reducing poverty and social exclusion. From 2014 common rules for all five European Structural and Investment Funds - European Regional Development Fund, European Social Fund, Cohesion Fund, European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, European Maritime and Fisheries Fund) are put in place to make them simpler to use. There are two Structural Funds: the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is currently the largest. Since 1975 it has provided support for the creation of infrastructure and productive job-creating investment, mainly for businesses; small and medium-sized enterprises the European Social Fund (ESF), set up in 1958, contributes to the integration into working life of the unemployed and disadvantaged sections of the population, mainly by funding training measures. In order to speed up economic, social and territorial convergence, the European Union set up a Cohesion Fund in It is intended for countries whose per capita GDP is below 90% of the Community average. The purpose of the Cohesion Fund is to grant financing to environment and transport infrastructure projects.
