1 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

2 European Framework Programmes for RTD (FPs)
FP = financial instrument for EU research strategy 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

3 FP7 2007 –2013 4 Specific Programmes plus JRC, nuclear and non-nuclear research (2.5 bn €)
Cooperation billion € Trans-national cooperation in 10 research themes through multi-national consortia. Ideas billion € Funding for top researchers from anywhere in the World: investigator-driven “frontier research”, supported by an autonomous European Research Council (ERC) People billion € Training, mobility, career development of researchers, (“Marie Curie” actions) - incl. International grants Capacities billion € Research infrastructures; research specifically for SMEs; regional research driven clusters 3

4 FP7 “Cooperation” Thematic Priorities: 6,0 1,9 Health
Billion Euro 6,0 1,9 9,1 3,5 2,2 1,9 4,1 0,6 2,9 Σ 32,3 Thematic Priorities: Health Food, agriculture & biotechnology Information & communication technologies Nanotechnologies & materials Energy Environment Transport Socio-economic sciences Security & 10. Space

5 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

6 Russia in the 7th EU Framework Programmes for RTD (2007-2013)
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

7 The next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020)

8 Competitive Business SMEs
The Multiannual Financial Framework : Commission’s proposals of 29 June 2011 Key challenge: stabilise the financial and economic system while taking measures to create economic opportunities 1. Smart & inclusive growth (€491bn) 2. Sustainable growth, natural resources (€383bn) 3. Security and citizenship (€18.5bn) 4. Global Europe (€70bn) 5. Administration (€62.6bn) Education, Youth, Sport Horizon 2020 Connecting Europe Cohesion Competitive Business SMEs Total: € 1,025bn

9 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

10 EU Framework Programme Budgets FP1 (1984-88) to Horizon 2020 (2014-20)

11 Horizon 2020: Three priorities

12 Priority 1: Excellent Science Proposed funding (million Euro, 2014-20)
European Research Council - ERC Frontier research by the best individual teams 13 268 Future and Emerging Technologies - FET Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation 3 100 Marie Curie Actions - MCA Opportunities for training and career development 5 572 Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructures) Ensuring access to world-class facilities 2 478

13 Priority 2: Industrial Leadership
Proposed funding (million Euro, ) Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies – LEIT (ICT, nanotechnologies, materials, biotechnology, manufacturing, space) 13 781 Access to risk finance Leveraging private finance and venture capital for research and innovation 3 538 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

14 Priority 3: Societal Challenges
Proposed funding (million Euro, ) Health, demographic change and wellbeing 8 033 Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research & the bioeconomy 4 152 Secure, clean and efficient energy* 5 782 Smart, green and integrated transport 6 802 Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials 3 160 Inclusive, innovative and secure societies 3 819 *Additional €1 788m for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities ( ) Does not include the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor - ITER.

15 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.

16 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.

17 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 2020 1/1/2014: Horizon 2020 starts; launch of first calls

18 European Research Information
EU Research & Innovation Seventh Framework Programme FP7 Calls for Proposals and information on research programmes and projects: FP New Partners Service Experts’ registration in FP Horizon 2020
