32  Good management practice  Innovation  Exploitation  Key Messages Experiences from Previous Calls

33  Projects should have critical mass, strategic impact and real economic value ! Our target projects of M€  Projects should be manageable and all partners should have a clear role and a significant contribution ! Our targets project of not more than 8 partners  In order to avoid cost on your and our side, only high quality proposals should be proposed. ! Our targets: oversubscription not more than 4 times Good management practice

34 KA1: Over-subscription ratio: 1st Call  

35 Statistics

36  Innovation in proposals can be in the form of novel products, services or applications  KA1 Focuses on innovative applications  Such applications will be based on innovative systems (e.g. new user- assistance systems for improving the access to government on-line services, monitoring of transport etc.) Work may involve:  Innovative integration of state-of-the-art IST systems and tools (e.g. UMTS, GNSS2, new software agents capable of recognising individuals and learning their specific needs and abilities over time)  May require research and development of dedicated IST components and tools (e.g. new sensors, interfaces) KA1: The Meaning of Innovation

37  The application system to be developed is not yet on the market  The proposal doesn’t duplicate 4th FP or 5th FP (1st or 2nd call).  “Clear demonstration of novelty” should naturally include a comparison with the “state-of-the-art” ***We want a new system at the end of the Project*** KA1: The Meaning of Innovation…Part 2

38  Fight the European paradox: Good research : no exploitation  Consortia composition is crucial. No profit driven industrialists means weak exploitation prospects  Exploitation potential should be Europe wide. In the past too many type partners didn’t care if the application was commercialised elsewhere: lost opportunity. KA1: Exploitation Planning

39 Key Messages Innovation (see Workprogramme 2000, page 10) Innovation (see Workprogramme 2000, page 10) ‘Users’ include public & private organisations ‘Users’ include public & private organisations Exploitation and strong industrial participation Exploitation and strong industrial participation Mainly long-term & medium-term R&D projects Mainly long-term & medium-term R&D projects
