From “FP” to Horizon 2020: Opportunities within EU Framework Programmes for RTD Maria Putseleva Policy Officer Science & Technology Delegation of the European Union to the Russian Federation
European Framework Programmes for RTD (FPs) ● Largest publicly funded competitive RTD programme worldwide (annual budget in FP7 > € 7 billion) ● Basic rule: trans-national collaboration ● Thematic programmes in all relevant technology areas (health, agri-bio- food …………….. space research) ● Special programmes for researchers’ mobility, research infrastructures, SMEs, capacity building ● A fixed budget for a defined number of years FP = financial instrument for EU research strategy
Cooperation 32.3 billion € Trans-national cooperation in 10 research themes through multi-national consortia. Ideas 7.5 billion € Funding for top researchers from anywhere in the World: investigator-driven “frontier research”, supported by an autonomous European Research Council (ERC) People 4.7 billion € Training, mobility, career development of researchers, (“Marie Curie” actions) - incl. International grants Capacities 4.2 billion € Research infrastructures; research specifically for SMEs; regional research driven clusters FP – Specific Programmes plus JRC, nuclear and non-nuclear research (2.5 bn €)
Information Communication Technologies (ICT) Two calls on ICT (deadlines: 15 January 2013, 16 April 2013) Three cross-thematic calls: “Factories of the Future”, “Smart Cities and Communities” and “ICT for Green Cars” Previously announced calls: Future and emerging technologies (FET) (deadline: ) Research priorities: Pervasive and trusted network and service infrastructures Cognitive systems and robotics Alternative paths to components and systems Technologies for digital content and languages ICT for health, ageing well, inclusion and governance ICT for a low carbon economy ICT for the enterprise and manufacturing ICT for learning and access to cultural resources
Russia in the 7th EU Framework Programmes for RTD ( ) By June 2012 : Overall, Russia is the most active international partner country 440 Russian participants in 271 projects, receiving ~ €57.6 million EU funding Highest participation in Transport, Space, ICT, Agri- Biotech-Food and Nanotechnologies / materials research
The next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation ( )
The Multiannual Financial Framework : Commission’s proposals of 29 June Smart & inclusive growth (€491bn) 2. Sustainable growth, natural resources (€383bn) 3. Security and citizenship (€18.5bn) 4. Global Europe (€70bn) 5. Administration (€62.6bn) Total: € 1,025bn Education, Youth, Sport Connecting Europe Cohesion Competitive Business SMEs Horizon 2020 Key challenge: stabilise the financial and economic system while taking measures to create economic opportunities
What is Horizon 2020 Commission proposal for a € 80 billion research and innovation funding programme ( ) A core part of Europe 2020 Strategy, Innovation Union & European Research Area: – Responding to the economic crisis to invest in future jobs and growth – Addressing peoples’ concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environment. – Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology
EU Framework Programme Budgets FP1 ( ) to Horizon 2020 ( )
Horizon 2020: Three priorities Excellent Science European Research Council Future and Emerging Technologies Marie Curie Actions Research infrastructures €24.5 bln Industrial Leadership Leadership in Enabling & Industrial Technologies Access to risk finance Innovation in SMEs €18 bln Societal Challenges Health, Food security, Energy, Transport, Climate action, Inclusive, innovative and secure societies €31.7 bln
European Research Council - ERC Frontier research by the best individual teams Future and Emerging Technologies - FET Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation Marie Curie Actions - MCA Opportunities for training and career development Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructures) Ensuring access to world-class facilities Priority 1: Excellent Science Proposed funding (million Euro, )
Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies – LEIT (ICT, nanotechnologies, materials, biotechnology, manufacturing, space) Access to risk finance Leveraging private finance and venture capital for research and innovation Innovation in Small and Medium- sized Enterprises - SME Fostering all forms of innovation in all types of SME 619 complemented by (expected 15% of societal challenges + LEIT) and 'Access to risk finance' with strong SME focus Priority 2: Industrial Leadership Proposed funding (million Euro, )
Health, demographic change and wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research & the bioeconomy Secure, clean and efficient energy* Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials Inclusive, innovative and secure societies Priority 3: Societal Challenges Proposed funding (million Euro, ) *Additional €1 788m for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities ( ). Does not include the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor - ITER.
ICT funding in Horizon 2020 EU investments increase by 46% compared to FP7. Support for riskier ICT research and innovation that can deliver new business breakthroughs. In particular, Horizon 2020 will support the development of: A new generation of components and systems including Micro / nano- electronics and photonics technologies, components and embedded systems engineering. Next generation computing, Advanced computing systems and technologies. Infrastructures, technologies and services for the future Internet, Content technologies and information management, including ICT for digital content and creativity. Advanced interfaces and robots and Robotics and smart spaces.
International cooperation International cooperation is crucial to address many Horizon 2020 objectives. Principle of general openness: the programme will remain to be the most open funding programme in the world. Targeted actions to be implemented taking a strategic approach to international cooperation.
Next steps Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on the basis of the Commission proposals Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on EU budget (including overall budget for Horizon 2020) July 2012: Final calls under 7th Framework Programme for Research to bridge gap towards Horizon 2020 Mid 2013: Adoption of legislative acts by EU Parliament and Council on Horizon /1/2014: Horizon 2020 starts; launch of first calls
