1 Research Proposal Requirements and Networking Workshop ESTEC, Noordwijk, 13 September 2004

2 ESA Research Plan Development European Science Foundation Recommendations Bischenberg 2000: 14 Cornerstones identified Obernai 2004: Revision and update Effect: –ESAs programme better harmonised w. other European funding authorities –Further teaming of research groups, thereby Combining strengths Increasing competitiveness globally

3 Summary Table Submissions: Submission of NOIs + Proposal -> Electronically Use standards forms downloaded from Proposal 12 Nov: Electronic to + paper Proposal content: Will be done in detail this afternoon

4 Announcement Objectives Background required in ground based preparation Flight experiments defined on many levels –Theoretical –Experimental –Diagnostic –Numerical modelling –Managerial Fundamental, Applied and Topical Teams

5 Research Proposal Categories in present Research Announcemnet Fundamental Research Topical Teams Application Oriented Research Continuously Open Opportunities Main characteristics of these explained in the following ……

6 Fundamental Research Typically science proposals that aim to utilise the longer duration space platforms (ISS and Foton/Bion) Extent of experiments can range from: –very modest (small, very focused, single-question experiments) with low resource requirements [these have best chance of flying] –To very ambitious, still focused, and logically coherent, multi- question / multi-parameter experiments [these need a very high rating before the significant resources will be made available]

7 Topical Teams In order to foster teaming up in anticipation of Announcements of Opportunity, ESA is supporting networks of scientists called Topical Teams that have as objectives: To anticipate on the long term development of research in their topic;

8 Topical Teams In order to foster teaming up in anticipation of Announcements of Opportunity, ESA is supporting networks of scientists called Topical Teams that have as objectives: To anticipate on the long term development of research in their topic; To assess the relevance of the space environment as a tool for investigations and determine the specifications of the instruments required for such investigations;

9 Topical Teams In order to foster teaming up in anticipation of Announcements of Opportunity, ESA is supporting networks of scientists called Topical Teams that have as objectives: To anticipate on the long term development of research in their topic; To assess the relevance of the space environment as a tool for investigations and determine the specifications of the instruments required for such investigations; To identify industry who could benefit from envisaged research and associate them to the definition of the objectives and the strategy of a space relevant project

10 Topical Teams In order to foster teaming up in anticipation of Announcements of Opportunity, ESA is supporting networks of scientists called Topical Teams that have as objectives: To anticipate on the long term development of research in their topic; To assess the relevance of the space environment as a tool for investigations and determine the specifications of the instruments required for such investigations; To identify industry who could benefit from envisaged research and associate them to the definition of the objectives and the strategy of a space relevant project To submit research programme proposals in association with their industry partners to ESA in response to regular Announcements of Opportunity such as the present one and, in parallel, to the EC as appropriate

11 Application Oriented Projects - Strategic Objective The overall strategic objective of the Microgravity Applications Programme (MAP) is to generate a European activity using the International Space Station as a facility for applied research and eventually for industrial R&D. The objective is to develop projects in order to: Optimise applied ground-based processes;

12 Application Oriented Projects - Strategic Objective The overall strategic objective of the Microgravity Applications Programme (MAP) is to generate a European activity using the International Space Station as a facility for applied research and eventually for industrial R&D. The objective is to develop projects in order to: Optimise applied ground-based processes; Generate benchmark data and materials samples and physical processes relevant to industrial R&D;

13 Application Oriented Projects - Strategic Objective The overall strategic objective of the Microgravity Applications Programme (MAP) is to generate a European activity using the International Space Station as a facility for applied research and eventually for industrial R&D. The objective is to develop projects in order to: Optimise applied ground-based processes; Generate benchmark data and materials samples and physical processes relevant to industrial R&D; Investigate biological or physiological changes associated to long-duration spaceflight, which are of interest for clinical applications on Earth.

14 Application Oriented Projects - Key to success The development of MAP projects took into account the following elements deemed to be key to success: Support to be provided during the full cycle of definition and development of dedicated flight experiment hardware, flight and operation, result analysis and exploitation;

15 Application Oriented Projects - Key to success The development of MAP projects took into account the following elements deemed to be key to success: Support to be provided during the full cycle of definition and development of dedicated flight experiment hardware, flight and operation, result analysis and exploitation; The time leading up to the actual generation of relevant results on the ISS to be already productive and beneficial to industrial participants inasmuch as ground-based research is supported and preparatory or precursor flight experiments are adequately planned;

16 Application Oriented Projects - Key to success The development of MAP projects took into account the following elements deemed to be key to success: Support to be provided during the full cycle of definition and development of dedicated flight experiment hardware, flight and operation, result analysis and exploitation; The time leading up to the actual generation of relevant results on the ISS to be already productive and beneficial to industrial participants inasmuch as ground-based research is supported and preparatory or precursor flight experiments are adequately planned; Full and fair Intellectual Property Rights protection to be assured for all partners, be they from academia or industry.

17 Funding Aspects – Fundamental Research … General Approach – main characteristics: - National (own) funding National funding of scientists after selection has been confirmed by ESA – scientist to confirm after agreement w. natonal authorities Ground-based background experiments funded by scientist / national funding General experiment specific equipment funded nationally Data handling pre- and post-mission typically scientist responsibility - ESA Funding Mission preparation and Baseline Data Programme supported by ESA (travels etc. still funded nationally) Standard flight HW funded and made available by ESA Data handling from flight related events funded by ESA

18 Funding Aspects – TT and Application … Topical Teams: Basic funding of travel and meeting activities for one year Application Projects: Max. of 225 kEuro per Academic Team Member Max. total funding per project: 900 kEuro ESA’s funding to cover non-permanent staff etc. Reassessment after 3 years Non-academic team members not funded by ESA Documents of importance: –Standard MAP contract (downloadable) –Partnership Agreement (downloadable)

19 Funding Aspects Continuously Open AOs These are ‘Fast-Track’ opportunities Parabolic Flights with no direct ESA funding of scientists Ground-based Facilities: –Special rules for funding –Max 50 kEuro per project –A large multitude of opportunities, see web location < Back to Latest Research AnnouncementsBack to Latest Research Announcements
