1 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 1 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policies Dr. Hans-Jörg Lutzeyer European Commission Research Directorate-General Directorate E.3 - Safe Food Production Systems

2 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 2 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Focussing and Integrating Community Focussing and Integrating Community Research To assemble a critical mass of resources and support integration of EU research capacities in 7 priority areas supporting policies and anticipating needs SME activities International cooperation JRC (non-nuclear research) Structuring ERA To structure the ERA in: Research & Innovation Training & Mobility Infrastructures Science & Society Strengthening the ERA Foundations To co-ordinate EU research activities To support the development of research/innovation policies FP6: General Structure

3 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 3 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Supporting policies 340 New and emerging science and technology 215 Horizontal research activities involving SMEs 430 Specific measures in support of international co-operation (in EUR million) Specific Activities Covering a Wider Field of Research

4 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 4 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Objectives Underpin formulation and implementation of Community policies Provide scientific support that is: –targeted precisely on needs (demand-driven) –integrated across policy areas and relevant scientific inputs –Responsive to changes in policy requirements as they occur

5 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 5 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Instruments Specific targeted research projects Co-ordination actions Specific support actions (conferences, workshops, expert groups, studies (possibly) Networks of excellence

6 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 6 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 WORK PROGRAMME Ongoing projects Scientific committees Emergencies! Continuously open call for ideas Systematic identification of needs Initial priorities (265 M€) New priorities (65 M€) * Scientific support to Community policies (CAP, CFP, …) Budget: 330 M€ Scientific Support to Policies: Flexible programming

7 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 7 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Initial Research Priorities Sustainable management of Europe’s natural resources (155 M€) – Agriculture – Fisheries – Environment Providing health, security and opportunity to the people of Europe (60 M€) – Public health – Sustainable social protection – Security, migration, crime Underpinning the economic potential and cohesion of a larger and more integrated European Union (50 M€) – European economy, sustainable development – Transport/energy – Information society, education, cultural heritage

8 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 8 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Selection of new priorities Open call Reception of proposals Evaluation Validation Incorporation of new priorities in the work programme Opinion of the relevant committees Commission DGs Political actors in MS Scientific actors Others « User group » Scientific experts

9 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 9 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Criteria for selection of new priorities Contribution to formulating/elaborating policies Potential contribution to EU competitiveness European added value Scientific relevance and feasibility Breakdown of tasks/ synergies with Joint Research Centers

10 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 10 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific support to Policies complements the Thematic Priorities

11 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 11 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: What do we hope to achieve ? Timely and effective scientific inputs to Community policies, with improved uptake of results A more coherent research base, reflecting the increasing integration of policies and the science that underpins them Systemic improvement in the relationships between research and policy at all levels in the EU Effective implementation of the European Research Area, e.g. in relation to the “European science reference area”

12 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 12 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Implementation (anticipated approach) Budget (M€ 330) Work programme: –Well-specified tasks –Single call per year, covering all topics –Possibility of “emergency” calls Evaluation criteria: –Conformity to policy objectives and task requirements –Scientific excellence/technical approach –Quality of partnership/necessary competencies –Management and organization of work

13 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 13 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Initial Research Priorities Sustainable management of Europe’s natural resources *The modernisation and sustainability of agriculture and forestry, including their multifunctional role in order to ensure the sustainable development and promotion of rural areas (35 M€) (trade negotiations, multifunctionality of agric., CAP reform, development of rural areas) *Tools and assessment methods for sustainable agriculture and forestry management (20 M€) *The modernisation and sustainability of fisheries policy, including aquaculture-based production systems (48 M€) *New and more environment friendly production methods to improve animal health and welfare including research on animal disease, swine fever and development of marker vaccines (10M€)

14 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 14 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Initial Research Priorities Sustainable management of Europe’s natural resources (continued) *Environmental assessment (Soil, water, air, noise, including the effects of chemical substances) *Assessment of environmental technologies for support of policy decisions, in particular concerning effective but low- cost technologies in the context of fulfilling environmental legislation.

15 DG ResearchEuropean Commission 15 DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/16/2014 Scientific Support to Policy: Initial Research Priorities Providing health, security and opportunity to the people of Europe *….. *The impact of environmental issues on health (including safety at work and methods for risk assessment and the mitigation of risks of natural disasters to people), *…... *Issues related to civil protection (including biosecurity and protection against risks arising from terrorist attacks), and crisis management
