Session 2: Horizon 2020 – preparations on national and regional level: lessons learned from FP7, methods to maximize funding levels, cooperation potential among countries of the region, scientific fields of special interest
Preparation to H2020, and related joint interests László SZARKA Head of Department of Research Institutes, Hungarian Academy of Sciences Mátraháza, 26 October, 2012
Contents 1. EU R&D programmes: FP6 and FP7 results and H2020 expectations 2. Publication prices and Open Access 3. Co-operation potential
1.EU R&D programmes: FP6 and FP7 results; H2020 expectations
Historical background of „West” and „East” Europe in brief „West”„East” After WW2Economic growth (Marshall plan, etc.) Pseudo-growth (Soviet era) 1990’sReunification of West+East Germany (costed 2000 Mrd euros) 2000’s„West”: expected markets from „East” „East” expected recovery and closing up to „West” 2004A very cheap reception of the „EU-12” Illusion-driven and rough-and-ready contracts were made with EU 2004-Increasing differences even in science due to the different initial conditions and our mistakes we have done since 2004.
Due to the different initial and boundary conditions, the list is not at all surprizing. Innovation order in Europe V4 countries
Rank order of countries involved in FP6 (sums calculated per capita inhabitants) V4
Rank order of 33 countries involved in FP7 according to FP7 support commitments signed until March 2011 (sums calculated in € per capita inhabitants) V4 (increased to 19,52€ by October 2012)
Sharing of EU FP6 sources between „West” and „East” (shown as present EU-12 countries) in million euros : EU10+2 )
Share from FP7 sources Support per capita inhabitant (€) Share from FP6 sources Difference between FP7 and FP6 EU2789,21%49,7491,8%-2,59% EU10+EU24,42%12,045%-0,58% V42,66%11,65no data EU1584,79%59,4686,8%-2,01% Associated, Candidate 8,70%no data6,5%+2,2% An updated statistics made by the National Innovation Office (October, 2012) Conclusion: a systematic constancy with very little error bar
EU FP7 facts from Hungary The success rate of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) is the highest in Hungary, but the number of projects and the obtained support is moderate. The success rate in terms of winning proposals and obtained support is similar in all V4 countries
Horizon 2020: opportunities and threats at the same time -Lobbying for better success rates than we experienced in FP6 and FP7 -Lobbying for more equal conditions -Lobbying for keeping the research potential in Central Europe Recent H2020 developments (10 October, 2012, Competitiveness Council) -25 % overhead -8 thousand €/year/researcher bonus -New „Marie Sklodowska-Curie” (MC) correction factors -Fine tuning of thematic priorities are under discussion (end of October, 2012)
V4 The new Marie Sklodowska-Curie correction factors
2. Publication prices and Open Access
The database of electronic journals in Hungay has been operated since 2012 by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences: better coordination among the Hungarian partners Renewal of contracts with big publishers: separation of electronic and print journal subscriptions New business models are expected in the era of transition to Open Acces Chances of a joint V4 coping with Elsevier?
Open Access Mandate of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences The President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences issued an Open Access Mandate on 24 September 2012 The researchers and employees of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences - including researchers of the subsidized research units and Momentum research groups - should make their scientific publications Open Access. i.) self-archiving in institutional or discipline-based repositories, ii.) publishing them in Open Access journals or in hybrid journals offering paid Open Access. The Mandate is obligatory for all scientific publications submitted for publication after January 1st, Open Access for scientific publications submitted before 2013, or published already, is recommended (through repositories). URLs of the Open Access versions of the publications should be entered to the Hungarian National Scientific Bibliography (MTMT) database. Embargo periods - if required by the publisher - could be accepted if no longer than one year (for articles). Corrected manuscripts (final versions accepted by the journals after peer review) could be archived. If the publisher does not accept any form of Open Access, publications should be archived in REAL, choosing a closed access option. For articles the option visible for "registered users only" should be applied, books should be visible for the "repository staff only", if the publisher does not allow Open Access deposit. Aspects of patentability could be taken into account. Details:
Received on 24 October, It is too expensive… What about a common strategy in transition to OA?
3. Co-operation potential - A closer contact among administrative heads of research networks in V4 countries would be welcome -Common regional interests -Scientific co-operations
