2 Content FP7 preparation approach and timetable Context for FP7 and for ICT in FP7 Research in New Financial Perspectives

3 FP7 preparations in DG INFSO: A three pronged approach Develop main orientations of FP7 –In association with DG RTD –Maintain momentum for research as agreed in New Financial Perspectives Elaborate ICT research strategy beyond 2006 –Objectives, content, instruments, constituency Build the bridge FP6-FP7 –IST Work Programme –Review of new FP6 instruments, 5 year assessment, etc.

4 FP7 - Milestones Communication on FPP beyond Feb –Commission proposal –Substantial increase in research budgets –5+2 (+2) research axes Communication setting the scene for FP7 12 May –Presentation to Competitiveness Council 17 May –Preparing for FP7 –Clarifying the concepts of the New Financial Perspectives –No thematic content! Communication: FP7 proposal early 2005

8 Content FP7 preparation approach and timetable Context for FP7 and for ICT in FP7 Research in the Financial Perspectives post 2006

9 FP7 - Context Research (as never before) is high on the political agenda First communications on FP7 should reinforce the Commission’s proposal in the New Financial Perspectives The decision on the New Financial perspectives will progress in parallel to the FP7 decision process Essential to develop and put forward solid arguments supporting the Commission’s proposal FP7 proposal must be credible and address the real needs for RTD and reliable implementation schemes

10 FP7 - ICT Context The Union Priorities for : Achieving the Lisbon goals –Sustainable development (competitiveness, cohesion and sustainable management and protection of natural resources) –European citizenship (freedom, justice, security, access to basic public goods) –Europe as a global partner (role on the international scene) ICT has an essential role in achieving these priorities –ICT for sustainable growth / productivity –ICT for security –ICT for solidarity …

11 Content FP7 preparation approach and timetable Context for FP7 and for ICT in FP7 Research in the Financial Perspectives post 2006

12 FP (+2) axes Individual research teams Research capacities Private/public partnerships (technology platform concept) Networking and collaboration Co-ordination of national and regional research programmes and policies + Space Security + Innovation International cooperation ICT research maps onto all 5+2 (+2) axes Cutting across

13 FP7 - Continuity Networking and collaboration (e.g. current IST activities) –Similar principles as in FP6 –Will take account of the analysis of the new FP6 instruments Research capacities –Further support to research infrastructures and human resources at Community level –GEANT + GRIDs+…. (to be defined) Coordination of national and regional programmes and policies (ERA) –Support through specific networking mechanisms

14 FP7/new - Individual research teams Support to Basic Research through Individual Grants –Stimulating competition Excellence as a major criterion for selection –No “juste retour” ! Light administration needed –Outsourcing to an executive agency, potential ERC ?

15 FP7/new - Private-public partnerships Implemented through “European Technology Platforms (ETPs)” –bring together the main stakeholders in a research and development field –develop a strategic research agenda and a roadmap to achieve these goals –stakeholders include industry, academia and the investors in research (public or private) Issues to clarify : –Criteria for selecting ETPs –Legal and financial mechanisms that can be used to support an ETP –Constituency to be involved and openness of an ETP –How to launch an ETP –How many ETPs can we realistically support

16 Conclusions so far... ICT is a main tool to support Community policy priorities: –Sustainable growth: ICT provides 50% of productivity growth in Europe and all main OECD countries –Cohesion and Citizenship: Better services of general interest, Better participation in democracy and public life –Europe’s role on the international scene: Key for ensuring citizens security ICT is not sufficient, ICT research is essential We should ensure that the importance of ICT is reflected in FP7 We should also realise that ICT has evolved –It is increasingly combined with other fields –To develop solutions that integrate ICT with other technologies –To address new fields: e.g. bio-nano-cogno…
