1 Stairway to Excellence (S2E) Mathieu Doussineau European Commission Joint Research Centre 11 th Czech Days for European Research on Synergies of H2020 with ESIF 04/11/2014

2 Presentation outline S2E introduction and main activities S2E and the Smart specialisation strategies S2E and Synergies First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

3 S2E introduction and main activities Key Information Initiator: Pilot Project from the European Parliament Implemented by JRC IPTS for DG REGIO through an Administrative agreement Length: 15 months (until august 2015) Definition: Cohesion Policy and the synergies with the research and development funds

4 Support to enhance the value of two key European Union (EU) funding sources for RDI (ESIF and H2020) by promoting their combination. Two main objectives: 1. Assistance to regions and countries that joined the EU since 2004 (EU13 – New EU Member States) in closing the innovation gap, in order to promote excellence in all regions and EU countries 2. Stimulate early and effective implementation of national and regional Smart Specialisation Strategies. S2E introduction and main activities

S2E introduction and main activities

6 Share of EC FP7 contribution received between 2007 and 2014 (starting from FP6) S2E introduction and main activities

8 S3 is a dynamic and evolutionary process – "not a structure"- deeply grounded in an entrepreneurial discovery process where governments are rather facilitators than in a position of command and control. S3 is about concentration of resources by developing distinctive and original areas of specialisation based on existing strengths, but not only local resources. S3 is a legal requirement for investing ERDF in R&I (Regulation (EU) 1303/2013). S2E introduction and main activities S2E and the Smart specialisation strategies

9 H2020 (Also COSME, Erasmus+, etc) ESI Funds RIS3 Source: Synergies between the transport component of Horizon 2020 and the Cohesion Policy 2014-2020: Expert Group Report S2E and the Smart specialisation strategies

10 Synergies & smart specialisation are linked … via the Entrepreneurial Discovery Process  Reiterative process  Creative thinking & new combinations  External view needed Business manufacturing and services, primary sectors, financial sector, creative industries, social sector, large firms, SMEs, young entrepreneurs, students with business ideas, cluster and business organisations, etc. Research public and private research bodies, universities, science and technology parks, NCPs, Technology transfer offices, Horizon2020 committee members, regional ESFRI roadmaps etc. Different departments, if relevant at different government levels, agencies e.g. for regional development, business advice, public procurement offices, incubators, etc. Public administration NGOs and citizens’ initiatives related to societal challenges for which innovative solutions would be helpful, consumers associations, Talents! etc. Civil society / Users Entrepreneurial in: -Composition and -Spirit: (risk-taking, broader view beyond boundaries …) Entrepreneurial in: -Composition and -Spirit: (risk-taking, broader view beyond boundaries …)

11 Presentation outline S2E introduction and main activities S2E and the Smart specialisation strategies S2E and Synergies First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

12 How to achieve synergies?  Successive projects that build on each other  Alternative funding: Take up high quality project Horizon 2020 proposals for which there is not enough budget available and implement via ESIF  Parallel projects that complement each other  Cumulative funding: Bringing together Horizon 2020 and ESIF money in the same project S2E and Synergies

13 Important Messages Not just about increasing H2020 funding but policy synergies Improve coordination of national and regional policies (avoiding silo effect) Enhance (economic) impact of projects Generate critical mass Strengthen cooperation and complementarity across Europe Strengthen cooperation between innovation actors and policies relevant for innovation S2E and Synergies

14 The Project will include the analysis and implementation of two different types of actions: Upstream preparatory actions (Action 1) analyses to assist R&I actors to use ESIF resources to participate better in Horizon 2020 calls (i.e. sequential funding) and amplify innovation impact of these two funding sources (i.e. simultaneous and/or parallel use) Downstream actions (Action 2) focus on exploitation and diffusion of results from earlier Framework Programmes and Horizon 2020 to MS/regions who joined in 2004, 2007 and 2013.

17 CAPACITY MAPPING- Main collaboration axis at regional and stakeholder level

18 CAPACITY MAPPING - other activities Case studies (Action 1 – capacity mapping) Case studies : Concrete examples of synergies (projects using FP and ESIF funds) We are interested in any examples you are aware Workshops/peer review meetings Also Specific examples of governance problems and country specific problems related to synergies

19 Presentation outline S2E introduction and main activities S2E and the Smart specialisation strategies S2E and Synergies First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

20 What happened the 2 and 3 October 2014 in Prague? 1.Presentation of the general concept of Synergies between EU funding (guide) 2.Presentation of case studies (already implemented synergies) 3.6 "coffee table" sessions on the following topics Table 1: Funding Horizon 2020 shortlisted proposals with ESIF: selection of operations and administrative burden, evaluation criteria Table 2: Consecutive funding of projects – uptake of FP/Horizon 2020 results onto the market Table 3: Consecutive funding of projects – capacity building and awareness raising to enhance participation into Horizon 2020 – human capital Table 4: Consecutive funding of projects – capacity building - funding R&I infrastructures with ESIF Table 5: Smart specialisation strategies: the role of NCPs and managing authorities in the fostering of synergies Table 6: Networking and the cross-border dimension of synergies First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

21 1.Need for improvement of the communication between the research communities and managing authorities of Structural funds. The research community needs to better understand how to apply to ESIF funds and better understand the regional priorities, Regional authorities should be able to identify excellence and potential projects to be combined. 2.Lack of coordination between regional and national authorities Communication and coordination of funding agencies and end beneficiaries are natural ways to overcome the cultural differences among stakeholders. First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

22 3.Using ESIF in projects and programmes of significant scale and scope requests a strong initial political commitment at national and/or regional level The RIS3 is could be considered a good framework to guide this process and to select a number of limited priorities which would help to be more strategic. 4.ESIF could be used to reinforce cooperation and take up high quality project proposals that were unsuccessful in H2020. First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

23 5.ESIF could help to improve the regional/national innovation system by: Building capacity of SMEs to innovate successfully, Provide incentives to connect academia and industry to create growth and to facilitate networking between innovation actors. 6.Creating synergies through parallel or consecutive projects requires a clear vision of the project in the long term and support all projects through the whole value chain. First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

24 7.Coordination of public support and the provision of tailored information are essential. Streamline information on different funding schemes to potential beneficiaries should be provided. First feedback on the S2E Launch conference

25 8.As part of the building capacity strategy, a set of measures could be taken at short, medium and long term perspective: Specialised training to have qualified professionals in project offices in universities, evaluating agencies and managing authorities. Direct support to stakeholders (business, universities, research groups, innovation agencies, etc.) to provide a way to improve participation, Creation of structures with a long-term view, such as creating international projects offices. First feedback on the S2E Launch conference
